Kennebec River Biosciences expands to Brunswick Landing

Richmond-based Kennebec River Biosciences will move its core laboratory and manufacturing plant to Brunswick Landing, the company announced Tuesday. The move will create “a significant number of new positions” at the aquatic animal health company to augment its current workforce, it said in a news release. The company employs 18. The expansion will position KRB to support the aquaculture industry both in the United States and globally and represents an initial investment of between $500,000 to $750,000, the release said. The company also plans to maintain a presence in Richmond, where it has been on Main Street since it was founded in 1996. “Aquatic animal health is an integral part of any successful aquaculture operation, said COO and Chief Science Officer Cem Giray. “It is also essential for proper wild fisheries management. KRB intends to play a leading role in meeting the needs of a growing aquaculture sector and helping deal with challenges faced by our fisheries.” When the company was founded, as Micro Technologies, it initially focused on providing health testing such as diagnostics and screenings for aquatic animals.
