€18 Million Investment into Life Science Lab

Aug 02 2020

Science and technology company Merck has announced an € 18 million investment into a new laboratory facility in Buchs, Switzerland to support the company’s rapidly growing reference materials business. The company anticipates that about two dozen jobs will be created.

"Researchers in testing labs around the world use Merck’s reference materials every day to help generate accurate, reliable analytical results in pharmaceutical, environmental and food and beverage analysis,” said Jean-Charles Wirth, head of Applied Solutions, Life Science at Merck. “This new laboratory will allow us to continue to drive innovation in diagnostics and testing and expand our research and development of analytical standards.”

Completion of the three-story, 1,125-square-meter Buchs building is scheduled for December 2021 and the move is planned for early 2022. Founded in 1950, the Buchs location employs around 450 people.
