Bioo Scientific Honored for Increasing Austin’s Ability to Compete in the Global Marketplace
Bioo Scientific, an Austin-based biotech company which manufactures food and feed safety test kits and products supporting life science research, received the British Airways International Trade, Investment & Expansion Award, which recognizes investments by international companies in Austin that create jobs locally, as well as Austin-based companies who have a global impact through products and services provided worldwide.
The awards, presented by the Austin Chamber, recognize local firms and organizations for achievements, community contributions and milestones. It is one of the largest business events in Central Texas, bringing together 1,000 business leaders, entrepreneurs, organizations, government officials and regional chambers.
About 300 companies were nominated for the Chamber's Business Awards. Out of this group, Bioo Scientific was recognized for being a top exporter in the Austin area. All of Bioo Scientific’s products are manufactured in the United States; however, international sales make up over three quarters of Bioo Scientific’s business. Bioo Scientific exports food and feed safety test kits and life science research products to more than 100 countries across Asia, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America.
Currently Bioo Scientific is focusing its attention on increasing its global presence, as exporting is essential to its future growth. The 2015 Greater Austin Business Export Awards recognizes the success of these efforts.
