FREDERICK, Md. - Local Company, Thermo Fisher Scientific celebrated its newly expanded facility in Frederick, Md. on Monday.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held at Thermo Fisher Scientific's newly expanded facility located on English Muffin Way in Frederick. Officials say it will serve as their new east coast distribution center. The Frederick campus houses a new Cryo-Innovation Center, and the National Cancer Institute Central Repository for clinical trials.
Frederick County's Office of Economic Development recently recognized Thermo Fisher Scientific Frederick campus as the 2018 expansion of the year.
"It's very important to expand out our presence here in Frederick County. We've not only built our distribution center, but also for supporting our gene therapy customers, which is really a new area of therapy that's going on, driven a lot out of the NIH, and so very important to be here in Frederick County,” said Thermo Fisher Scientific President, and Chief Operating Officer, Mark Stevenson.
