Eppendorf Completes Facility Expansion

Enfield, CT – Dacon announced it has completed the expansion of Eppendorf’s manufacturing operations within the life science company’s Connecticut regional facility.

Eppendorf’s competencies are focused in three key areas: liquid, sampling and cell handling. From basic lab applications to sophisticated molecular biology, Eppendorf acts as a partner supplying scientific instruments that ensure valid and complete research studies. Noted product innovations include the first spectral line photometer and semi-automated work station.

This project is in response to new sales growth. The 10,000sf ISO-8 clean room will house injection molding operations to support the main lines of syringes and pipettes. With the capacity to hold 100 employees, this conversion includes new mechanical, electrical, plumbing and life safety systems, along with meeting the ISO standards for Class 8 certification.

States Kevin Quinn, Dacon’s CEO, “With their entrepreneurial culture and forward-thinking product management, it is easy to see why Eppendorf continues on a successful trajectory. We are enjoying creating an environment supporting their growth.”
