Nashville, Tennessee (WKRN) – In the last 12 months, the biotechnology industry has proven to play an important role in our economy and is gaining in popularity in Tennessee.
Over the last two years, we have seen many technological advances and their accelerated growth among various life sciences companies, including: August bioservice.
The company serves biopharmacy and biotechnology customers seeking to outsource part of the drug development, research, or drug manufacturing process.
They look forward to expanding their workforce to quality jobs here in Nashville, from 65 to 240 people, over the next few years.
Joe Mase, Executive Vice President of Operations at August Bioservices, said:
New JLL report Titled “Life Sciences Emerging Markets Index: Ready for a Paradigm Shift,” Nashville ranks among the top 10 fastest growing biotechnology hubs in employment opportunities.
Bob Rolf, Commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development, said: “The biotechnology hub space is an area where we have been very deliberate in hiring companies.”
Nashville’s lifestyle, cost of living, talent pool, and vital advantage are all factors in Nashville’s popularity and why biotech companies chose to move to central Tennessee.
Experts believe that talent and momentum must be combined and united in order for our market to reach its full potential.
“Central Tennessee has always been a hub for life sciences companies,” Adams said. “I think this biotechnology and biopharmaceutical work is like the last work on the wheel. It’s currently under development and I’m excited to be at the forefront of it.”
Within the past year and a half, Nashville has welcomed about five biotechnology or biopharmacy companies into the region, according to Rolfe. They will be announced shortly.
Biotechnology includes the use of biological systems and organisms to develop or manufacture products such as antibiotics and hormones.
