Düsseldorf, Germany: June 24th 2021— Supported by increasingly robust directed enzyme evolution capabilities, Enzymaster continues to advance the development and commercialization of high performing biocatalysts.

North American companies across a range of industries including pharmaceutical, food and beverage, agriculture, consumer goods and many other markets are turning to enzyme catalysts for cleaner and more efficient transformation solutions. Creating a formal presence in the United States is the next step in the strategic effort to support the market and to extend the capabilities of Enzymaster’s corporate headquarters and manufacturing centre in Ningbo, China as well as the international business
management office and center for bioinformatic intelligence based in Düsseldorf, Germany.
“We aim to contribute to a greener and safer environment by supporting our customers in utilizing enzymes in their manufacturing processes,” commented Dr. Thomas Daussmann, Enzymaster’s Executive Vice President for International Business. “It’s time to build on the success we’ve had in North America with key investments in the development of business models tailored to the market, the right partners, and the creation of and participation in key industry events.”

Introduction of Fit-for-Purpose Financial Models
Enzymaster is in the process of launching business relationship models specifically designed for the needs of the North American market. These models will address the ranging needs and objectives of companies at various stages of business and biocatalysis maturity.

Options will include fee-for-service models with client-centric intellectual property constructs, development programs that include commercial manufacturing of engineered enzymes, and collaborative enzyme engineering partnership models.

North America Commercialization Supported by Haig Barrett, Inc.
In the near future, Enzymaster will open facilities in the United States. To lay a strong foundation for this critical step, Haig Barrett, Inc, business management consultants specializing in the life sciences and specialty chemicals markets, will collaborate to strengthen Enzymaster’s capacity to serve the North American market.
