Cortec® Corp., St. Paul, Minn., has opened the Cortec Biotechnology Campus in Sarasota, Fla. The 36,000-sq.-ft. research facility comprises office, manufacturing, warehouse, and two laboratory areas.
The plant houses equipment for the manufacture of the company’s Nano-VpCI® coatings and Bionetix’s bioremediation and cleaning products. Part of the warehouse is designated for warehousing and shipping of products that are deemed “freezable” and cannot be shipped out of the firm’s Minnesota or Wisconsin plants during the winter months. This complex also houses two modern laboratories for biotechnology and marine corrosion research, as well as sales and customer support offices for the southeastern U.S., Caribbean, and Central and South America.
