Bio-Works opens sales office in USA

Press release March 20th 2018

Bio-Works has opened a sales office in Philadelpia, USA to meet the large demand for separation and purification products for the production of biological medicine in the American market. To be able to support the customers at the right competence level the office will initially be manned with Swedish personnel. Bio-Works will during this year start to build a network of local sales people who will in the future manage the customer relations in USA and Canada.

Mats Johnson, Bio-Works CEO:
”While South Korea is the single most important market for biosimilars, not the least in Asia, USA is the single most important market for agarose based purification of biomolecules for production of original biopharmaceuticals. Many of the original biopharmaceuticals are developed in the US and the rest of the world often copies how the production is done there. Thus it is strategically important to have a good position in the American market. With the establishment of our American office, in combination with our on-going sales activites together with Amicogen in South Korea, we have a good coverage of prioritized markets.”
