2023 Recap

2023 was a big year for the company!

We’ll be undergoing a major facility expansion in the new year to meet the growing demand for our micro-algae bioreactors, and our new product line of seaweed bioreactors that support seedling production for the emerging seaweed sector.

I am extremely proud of our team for pushing the limits of manufacturing & science while delivering top-notch support for our clients in 32 countries and counting…😊
