A pharmaceutical development company is to increase its laboratory and office space by a third, creating up to 15 new posts over the next two years.

MedPharm Ltd, which tests and manufactures ointments, has been based in Guildford since 2006.

The firm said the expansion of its base at Surrey Research Park was to meet increasing demand for its work.

The growth was a symbol "of how our business has gone from strength to strength," its CEO Andrew Muddle said.

"We have been continually growing over the eight years that we have been at the Surrey Research Park," Dr Muddle said.

"We currently have 65 staff and this means we can increase by a further 10 to 15 people over the next two years."

The Surrey Research Park is owned and managed by The University of Surrey.
