Agencourt Opens New Headquarters; Plans to Expand Workforce

NEW YORK, Sept. 7 (GenomeWeb News) - Agencourt Bioscience today opened its new headquarters in Beverly, Mass., and announced plans to expand its current 80-person workforce to approximately 100 people by the end of 2004.

 

The new 30,000 square-foot facility more than doubles the size of Agencourt's previous facility, the company said.

 

Agencourt said its relocation and expansion are being driven by the $27.2 million grant it received last fall from the National Human Genome Research Institute to serve as one of five NHGRI-funded large-scale sequencing centers.
