NEW YORK, March 15 – Software developer NuTec Sciences announced plans Thursday to make a push into the European life sciences market.
The company said its new office, NuTec Sciences Limited, would be located near Manchester, UK, and named Stephane Labonte managing director in charge of growing NuTec’s life science business and its energy services division in Europe.
“The expansion of operations into Europe reflects the success of our US business model,” Michael Mott, vice president of marketing for NuTec. “By leveraging our core competencies in informatics, integrated software, and massively parallel supercomputing technology, we are creating highly specialized products for the marketplace.”
The company, which hopes to form alliances with British labs and universities, is also planning to install a massively parallel supercomputer in Europe starting sometime within the next year.
In December NuTec said it had contracted IBM to build a 7.5-teraflop computing cluster that NuTec’s life science unit in Atlanta would use to study genes’ role in disease.
NuTec develops desktop software applications and massively parallel supercomputing technology.
