Novomer to Open New Innovation Center
Novomer Inc., Boston, MA/USA, has announced plans to open a new innovation center in Rochester, N.Y. The facility – named the “Novomer Innovation Center” – is designed to meet the expanding demands of the company’s growing bio-based chemicals business.
All equipment, production assets, and employees will be transferred from the existing product development and pilot operations location to the new 26,000 sq ft facility. Novomer will occupy the leased space in December where it is currently undertaking significant renovations and improvements. The larger facility will house technology research, product development activities, and a COEth Process demonstration unit to make customer samples for a variety of products.
“This move reflects our rapid growth which has resulted in the need for additional space to develop new innovative products, meet customer demands for product testing, and collaborate with partners,” explained Jim Mahoney, CEO of Novomer. The location, just minutes from the Greater Rochester International Airport, will also be more convenient for partners, customers, and vendors to visit Novomer’s technical facilities. Novomer is expected to employ about 60 chemists, engineers, lab technicians, and other personnel at the new facility.
