Taconic Biosciences Ribbon Cutting
Join us as we celebrate Taconic Biosciences ribbon cutting celebration of its new headquarters.
Taconic Biosciences announced in August 2017 of plans to move its corporate headquarters from Hudson to the Albany, NY area. The new location is near several existing Taconic facilities in Rensselaer, 45 miles from its primary operations facility in Germantown, NY, and accessible to all global locations.
With Taconic's increasing prominence within the global pharmaceutical industry, the location of the new headquarters provides a more convenient venue for key stakeholders and customers, provides access to highly-skilled talent, and puts Taconic in the center of the booming Albany technology hub. The new facility houses the company's leadership team, as well as members of its product strategy, marketing, human resources, finance, quality, customers service, and business technology teams. Thirty-five (35) jobs relocated to the area, while 28 moved to the Germantown facility. "Relocating Taconic's headquarters to the Health Sciences Campus expands on a long-standing relationship between the two organizations. The resulting co-location of more than 130 Taconic employees will increase internal collaboration across functions. The site's easily accessible location to highly educated talent, as well as proximity to prospective partners and customers, makes it an ideal fit," shared David Lester, senior vice president of human resources and organization development.
Located on the Albany Health Sciences Campus in Rensselaer, NY, the new corporate headquarters is in the state-of-the-art Cancer Research Center building, which already houses Taconic's molecular analysis laboratory. The site is home to other key players within the pharmaceutical industry, notably Regeneron, Albany Molecular Research, Inc., Albany Medical College, Albany College of Pharmacy, and several other biomedical organizations. Taconic also occupies two other buildings on the campus, housing its scientific services business and operations functions. "We are pleased to expand our relationship with Taconic and bring additional jobs to the UABDC property," expressed Richard P. McGinn Jr., executive director at the University at Albany Bioscience Development Corporation.
