Business Development & Acquisition
The Business Development Team is responsible for the growth of our Campus by attracting new tenants to an attractive environment. We have chosen to provide such an attractive environment for 4 activities: Plastic Materials, Additive Manufacturing, Biomedical Materials and Chemical Process Technology.
The first crucial step is a continuous dialogue to identify the needs of our current and future customers in a rapidly changing world. From there we take the steps to provide what is required in terms of facilities, equipment, knowledge or services. For this we work closely work with our Operations and Building Projects teams.
The second step is to make enterpreneurs and companies aware of these ecosystems, and to closely work with those interested to become a member to craft the perfect solution for their needs. Sometimes this is found within our existing facilities, sometimes this requires tailor-made solutions. A good example of the latter are customer-designed pilot plants for the upscaling of new chemical processes.
