A publically traded pharmaceutical company formerly based in Houston, Texas, will now call Morristown home.

Pernix Therapeutics Holdings Inc. inked a contract to occupy more than 6,000-square-feet at 10 North Park Place, according to njbiz.com.

10 North Park Place is located next to the Century 21 Department Store.
