AgriLabs LLC has entered the vaccine business by acquiring the manufacturing operations of Antelope Valley Bios Inc., Benchmark Biolabs Inc. and Benchmark’s ownership interest in VaxLiant, all based in Lincoln, Neb.
The deals, announced April 27, make AgriLabs a provider of “concept-to-commercialization services for vaccines” administered to pigs, cattle and poultry, the company reported.
“By adding state-of-the-art manufacturing capabilities to our U.S. marketing and sales operations, we can deliver more value to veterinarians and producers, both domestically and worldwide,” said AgriLabs’ CEO, Steve Schram.
The company is based in St. Joseph, Mo.
AgriLabs’ subsidiaries will continue to operate as standalone business entities, the company added.
