From Argentina to St. Louis: AgIdea Plans New HQ
- Jan 18, 2017
St. Louis—AgIdea, a contract research and development company based in Argentina is expanding its footprint in St. Louis. The company selected Helix Center Biotech Incubator to serve as their new headquarters in North America.
AgIdea provides scientific support to R&D and regulatory projects in biotechnology, seed and crop protection industries. They assist companies with project design, management, trials, data analysis and product deregulation.
The firm first entered Missouri one year ago, and began conducting field and laboratory experiments in Marshall, Mo. Following a series of successful trials, the company chose St. Louis County for its North American headquarters due to its proximity to customers and the agtech ecosystem, and its rapid access to the Marshall Research Station.
“The help and support we have received from Missouri Partnership and Marshall-Saline Development Corporation (MSDC) have been critical to our company. We have found a very dynamic ecosystem with talented human resources and ideal infrastructure to match our current and future needs,” Mariano Battista, CEO of AgIdea, said in a statement.
