Bio-Techne Corporation has announced the opening of its new Irish facility located in Dublin. This new facility reflects Bio-Techne’s commitment to supporting the broader life sciences industry in Europe as well as expectations for continued growth and staffing needs in this geography.
The Dublin facility is responsible for servicing Bio-Techne’s growing number of European-based academic and biopharma customers with the Company’s full portfolio of life science tools and diagnostic reagents, with the new site serving as the region’s primary distribution hub. The 25,000 square foot facility strengthens Bio-Techne’s supply chain, positioning the Company to address the growing demand for its portfolio of life science reagents and proteomic analytical tools.
Bio-Techne’s new Ireland office was designed to be environmentally friendly, meeting the requirements for a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver accreditation.
