Steve Bates, BIA CEO, travelled to Darlington on Wednesday to provide the closing remarks at the official opening of the National Biologics Manufacturing Centre (NBMC). The new Centre was opened by Jo Johnson, Minister of State for Universities and Science and Steve Bagshaw, CEO of Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies.

Announced in 2012 as part of the government’s Strategy for UK Life Sciences, the CPI’s NBMC aims to significantly increase the UK’s manufacturing capability in biologics and strengthen the UK’s position as the location of choice for life science companies. It will support companies of all sizes to develop, prove, demonstrate, scale up and commercialise new biologic process technologies.
