Anpac Bio, a biotechnology firm based in San Jose, is planning to move its headquarters to a newly- constructed office facility in Lower Gwynedd in March next year, writes Katie Park for The Philadelphia Inquirer.

The company that specializes in early cancer detection signed a 10-year lease for space at the Spring House Innovation Park on Oct. 9. The move is part of the firm’s plans to expand to the East Coast.

“Strategically, we would like to have another lab in another part of the country,” Shaun Gong, deputy president of Anpac Bio’s branch in North America. “After screening different places, we really think Philadelphia has a lot of things to offer.”

Anpac, which was founded by Penn State alumnus Chris Yu, plans to keep its San Hose office and bring 10 out of its 100 employees to the new Montgomery County location.

“This build-to-suit laboratory space at Spring House Innovation Park will make for a premier facility and allow Anpac to meet all of its technical requirements,” said Tony Rossi, senior vice president of CBRE.
