PHILADELPHIA, US: FMC Corporation said that it will establish a European regional headquarters and research facility in Horsholm, a suburb of Copenhagen, Denmark. The new FMC European innovation centre (EIC), expected to open in 2016, will serve as a central hub for research and development, regional corporate functions and regional commercial teams.

“FMC has a larger presence in Europe today with our recent acquisition of Cheminova. The new EIC will enhance our ability to collaborate with customers and suppliers throughout the region and ensure that we fulfil the growth potential of our newly combined company,” said Pierre Brondeau, president, CEO and chairman, FMC.

The new centre will be located at the Scion DTU science and technology park in Horsholm, approximately 25 kilometre north of Copenhagen. It will bring together employees who currently work at sites throughout Europe and the US, including employees in research, sales, marketing, regional management, finance, supply chain, human resources and related functions.

“Denmark is a well-known centre for food and bioscience research with an exceptional workforce. We look forward to bringing these important technology and commercial jobs to Horsholm, while maintaining our manufacturing and associated support activities in Ronland, Denmark,” said Brondeau.

“The science park Scion DTU is Denmark’s largest biotech cluster and is home to companies like Chr Hansen, Roche and ALK. We are proud that FMC has chosen to locate its regional headquarter here and we are delighted to welcome them to our innovative environment,” said Steen Donner, CEO, Scion DTU.
