Looking Forward: Big Plans for 2019

Written by Giedre on 12th December 2018



After the success of 2018 (read more about that here), I am delighted to now be in a position to talk about the exciting things that AbBaltis has planned for 2019. We will be continuing to build on our current successes, as well as looking at new ways in which we can diversify to more holistically serve our customers.

 

Probably the biggest piece of news is that we are moving! This is extremely positive because the reason is simple: we’ve outgrown our current premises! We’ve simply got too many people to fit where we are, and with more hires planned for 2019, I felt it was time to spread out. The good news is that we’re not going far and are currently looking at moving into a different building at Kent Science Park. My plan is for the move to give us double the amount of office and lab space, which should facilitate our current rate of growth very nicely.

 

In 2018 we were joined by Mark Swayne - a former Novartis scientist who is now heading up our Research and Development work. This work includes expanding our diagnostic range to include veterinary diagnostic materials; developing antigens for in vitro diagnostic (IVD) and developing diagnostic test kits for emerging diseases. More details on these developments will follow in the New Year.

 

In terms of recruiting new people, I remain steadfast in my commitment to train and develop the next generation of scientists. I am keen to find young scientists who have recently graduated who are interested in the AbBaltis Graduate Training scheme; as well as those who never had the opportunity to attend university who are interested in apprenticeships. New opportunities here will be appearing on the “Careers” section of our website as they arise.

 

That’s a brief summary of our plans for 2019 so far, but stay tuned to our website and our Facebook page for more developments and updates as things progress. I look forward to working with you all next year and beyond.

 

- Giedre Brandao, Managing Director, December 2018
