Sartorius Stedim Biotech sets up Nordic HQ in Copenhagen

Sartorius Stedim Biotech, a leading supplier of disposable processing equipment for biotech production, has chosen to set up its Nordic Headquarters in Copenhagen
Sartorius Stedim Biotech, a company formed when German mechatronics company Sartorius recently acquired the French plastic producer Stedim S.A., has chosen to set up its Nordic Headquarters in Copenhagen. The company is listed on the French Stock Exchange and is a leading supplier of disposable processing equipment for biotech production.
 
In charge of setting up Sartorius Stedim Nordic A/S is Henrik Krogen, who will be its general manager. He sees plastic disposable production equipment replacing conventional steel tanks and pipes for biotech production, and that the Nordic countries will lead the way in switching the production concept to 'disposable bioprocessing'. This is largely because cleaning up bioprocess production equipment is a costly procedure requiring many chemicals, which also have an environmental impact.
 
According to Henrik Krogen, the decisive factors in the choice of Copenhagen ahead of the Swedish capital Stockholm were the strength of the biotech cluster in Medicon Valley centred around the Copenhagen area, the ready availability of venture capital for local investment and the reputation for academic excellence across the Øresund region.
 
Sartorius, whose Danish customers include Novo Nordisk and Bavarian Nordic, is headquartered in the German university town of Göttingen. The mechatronics company employs 4,500 people and 2007 turnover is forecast at EUR 600 m. The news was reported by Medicon Valley.
