May 25 2017 Read 971 Times

BioTek Instruments celebrated the completion of a $4.5 million facility expansion and renovation during a company-wide event on Thursday, May 18. The 22,000 ft2 expansion is already supporting the Company’s rapid growth. While many departments are benefitting from the additional space, the Company’s manufacturing area is most notably affected, growing by 33%. The project also includes a new 1,400 ft2 training facility for the Company’s new and existing employees.

In a letter to the company, Vermont Governor, Phil Scott, congratulated BioTek on the expansion stating, “BioTek is a working example of how a high-technology company can make its home here in Vermont and compete with and win against top companies located anywhere in the world.”

At the event BioTek President and CEO, Briar Alpert, told employees that the project will “position BioTek to continue to execute on (the Company’s) strategy of becoming one of the largest life science instrumentation companies in the world.” He continued saying, “In short, we are building tools that are unlocking the mysteries of life and we are doing this from right here in Vermont.”
