Origin Agritech establishes North American office

BVI-registered biotechnological company Origin Agritech Ltd., working in China, has started operations in North America, in Des Moines downtown, effective August 29, 2016. The establishment of the North America operations and international relations centre is a key step in a number of strategic actions to make Origin the leading global foundation biotech and seed development company.

Origin Agritech CEO Bill Niebur said in his comment that Des Moines “is an ideal location for Origin’s North American operations, providing superior access to talent, technologies and proximity to key target markets”. Company’s CEO, CFO and team members will be located at Des Moines, while main biotech and seed breeding operations, among them plant breeding and biotech research and development centre, will continue to be based in China. Company’s CTO will continue to oversee operations in China from Beijing. Presence of the company in North America is a result of its aim to focus on globalization and become a multinational corporation.
