Waters has announced the launch of its new, custom-built mass spectrometry headquarters at Wilmslow, the UK. The center was inagurated by the CEO Mr Doug Berthiaume and the Honourable Mr George Osborne, MP.
The 2313m² building, which took less than two years to build, comes equipped with state-of-art customer demonstration laboratories, research and development capabilities and an expanded manufacturing capacity.
The center, which has been constructed to a very good BREEAM rating also has features like rain water harvesting tanks, solar panels, and heat recovery systems. This center brings together Waters' existing mass spectrometry centres in the region consisting of more than 500 employees.
Mr Brian Smith, VP, Mass Spectrometry Operations at Waters commented, "Our new Waters Mass Spectrometry Headquarters in Wilmslow marks our continued investment in the region and dedication to the North West. The new facility has been specially designed to enhance collaboration and drive innovation, building on the research and scores of patents that we have already accomplished in the field, right at the heart of where mass spectrometry first began, here in Manchester."
Waters has expanded its mass spectrometry portfolio significantly in the recent past, with the introduction of new advanced instruments.
