Abbott buys its Scarborough plant for $17M

On top of recent expansions that are adding nearly 200,000 square feet in Scarborough and Westbrook, Chicago-based Abbott Diagnostics has bought the property that’s home to the medical test maker’s primary Maine-based production facility.

Abbott Diagnostics Scarborough Inc. bought an 111,590-square-foot  industrial building at 10 Southgate Road in Scarborough for $16.95 million.
