Q Laboratories has purchased two buildings (1920 and 1930 Radcliff Avenue, Cincinnati, Ohio) as part of its ongoing capacity expansion project. The two buildings sit adjacent to the 30,000 sq. ft. laboratory building currently under construction, scheduled to be completed in Spring 2018. The newly-acquired buildings entail 25,000 sq. ft., and will eventually serve as administrative offices supporting the company’s microbiology, analytical chemistry and research & development laboratories.
Until the new lab building is completed, Q Laboratories has re-located the Microbiology Pharma Laboratory to the newly purchased buildings allowing for expansion of both that lab and the Microbiology Food Lab, which will utilize vacated space at the current Harrison Avenue location.
Q Laboratories President and CEO Jeff Rowe explained, “Capacity expansion has been a continued focus of the company and we did not want to wait until first quarter 2018 when construction is completed to give these two laboratories much needed space.”
