November 12, 2008

On Friday, November 7, the Bridge Business Center opened its doors to showcase the first 50,000 square feet of renovated Research & Development/Laboratory space at its 30 acre campus in Bristol for use by Life Science, Specialty Chemicals and related Advanced Manufacturing companies.Keystone Redevelopment LLC, is redeveloping the Bristol Township parcel formerly owned by Rohm and Haas. Keystone's Rob Loughery said Bucks County Community College will lease 3,500 square feet of space for chemistry classes, becoming one of the first tenants in the 50,000 square feet of renovated laboratory and research-and-development space.

The Bridge Business Center is ideally located to offer expansion capacity not only for the growing Life Science industry in the Greater Philadelphia region, including contract manufacturing & research, generic drug manufacturing & biologics, but also for advanced manufacturing and specialty chemical companies engaged in developing technologies for medicine and agricultural crops, industrial and environmental biotechnology, and alternative energy.

James C. Greenwood, President and CEO of the Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO) in Washington, D.C., attended the event and gave the building his stamp of approval. BIO is the world's largest Biotechnology organization, providing advocacy, business development and communications services for more than 1,200 members worldwide.

Doylestown based Keystone Redevelopment Group has been working to reposition over 200,000 square feet of existing laboratory, office and manufacturing buildings, which were part of Rohm and Haas holdings until 2005, to meet the anticipated growing demand of these industry sectors in this region. The space available at Bridge Business Center includes high-end, specialty research chemistry and biology labs, advanced manufacturing facilities suitable for contract manufacturing & pilot plant operations, and related corporate and administrative office space.

The Bridge Business Center is part of the Bucks County BIO-KIZ, a state designated Keystone Innovation Zone targeted for the Life Sciences industry. Public incentives are available to the companies that decide to locate in the Bridge Business Center.
