Expanding in China, PerkinElmer Opens New Tech Center in Shanghai; Will Be New China HQ

NEW YORK, Feb. 22 (GenomeWeb News) - PerkinElmer today said it has opened a new technology center in Shanghai, China, and that it will consolidate into it three existing facilities in that city.

 

The new center, which PerkinElmer said "allows for easy expansion," aims to bring together PerkinElmer's sales, service, customer care, and technology-support functions, and will be the company's regional headquarters for greater China.

 

The new center is located at ZhangjiangBio-PharmaParkin PudongNewTerritory.

 

As GenomeWeb News reported in 2003, PerkinElmer opened a subsidiary to provide sales and service for its life and analytical sciences products. That space, which is located in the Shanghai WaiGaoQiao Free Trade Zone, was to employ approximately 100 sales and service staffers, the company said at the time.

 

It was not immediately clear if this space is one of the three the company plans to consolidate into the new technology center.
