- New headquarters underlines Abcam’s optimism for the future
In June, Abcam opened its new global headquarters at 330 Cambridge Science Park, Cambridge, UK marking the latest step in the company’s expansion.
The new headquarters, at 25,000 sq ft, is double the size of the previous building, which was located just 200 m away. The additional space in the new building will provide sufficient capacity for the company’s anticipated growth over the next few years and allow it to better serve the needs of its customers.
In addition to administrative space, the new building includes sales and marketing functions, customer and technical support, web development and warehousing. With the continually growing catalog now standing at over 52,000 products, the increase in warehousing and logistics facilities was essential.
The new building is supported by Abcam’s own state-of-the-art laboratory, which is also located on the Science Park.
The move to Unit 330 marks the fourth time Abcam has moved to bigger premises on the Science Park, reflecting the company’s impressive track record of growth. Negotiations for the leasehold to the new building were handled by Colliers CRE on behalf of Abcam.
Jim Warwick, Abcam’s Managing Director, commented: ‘This move into new headquarters on the Cambridge Science Park marks another important milestone in the growth of Abcam. The move represents the fourth time that we have relocated to bigger premises on the Science Park and underlines our optimism for the future.’
