Abcam plc, a global leader in the supply of innovative protein research tools, has announced that it will open a new office in February 2014, in Shanghai, China. The new hub is the Company’s ninth global office, and has been established to support Abcam’s focus on increasing geographic reach and improving distribution channels to rapidly growing markets.
Located in Zhangjiang Hi-Tech Park, Pudong New District, a prominent economic growth and innovation area, the office is within close proximity of the City and Abcam’s production facility in Hangzhou, which develops pioneering research tools such as RabMAb ® , its proprietary rabbit monoclonal antibody technology.
The office will house customer and technical support functions, provided by native Mandarin speakers, as well as a product warehouse,
which will facilitate local stock storage for the first time. This means that customers will benefit from improved delivery times, with the large majority of orders arriving at their door within 24 hours. The proximity of the office will also enable Abcam to support customers with more specific needs through its extensive range of products and services, including custom antibody production.
Dr Jonathan Milner, CEO, Abcam, said: “China is an important market for Abcam and we’re pleased to provide enhanced services such as faster delivery and dedicated local language support to our customers. Further future investments will ensure we continue to deliver innovative products and services to enable scientists to discover more.”
Customers can continue to order Abcam products from their local dealer.
