Quintiles, the world’s largest biopharmaceutical services provider, has been named to the Fortune 500 list of largest U.S. companies ranked by revenue, the company announced Tuesday morning.

“Being named to the Fortune 500 is a significant milestone in Quintiles’ history,” CEO Tom Pike said in a statement. “We operated as a private company for a full decade before returning to the public markets via IPO in 2013.

“Quintiles’ management and our 29,000-plus employees around the world take great pride in what this accomplishment says about the impact and forward thinking of this company,” Pike continued. “We come to work every day seeking to help patients and improve our customers’ probability of success. Joining the Fortune 500 is evidence that we are indeed on the right path.”
