Brewer Science expands R&D facilities to the Jordan Valley Innovation Center

Dec 21, 2005

Brewer Science will soon have additional quarters for its research and development (R&D) activities.  In addition to R&D facilities currently in place at its global headquarters in Rolla, Missouri, Brewer Science will occupy an entire floor (3800 sq.ft.) of the Jordan Valley Innovation Center (JVIC) in Springfield, Missouri.  The partnership and additional space allow Brewer Science to focus on developing fully integrated technologies, such as sensors that can detect and respond to biological, chemical, and physical threats, through collaboration with MSU, industry partners, and the government.

JVIC, the facility component of Missouri State University's (MSU) Center for Applied Science and Engineering (CASE), will house research, development, test, and evaluation laboratories for the university and core members of JVIC.  Brewer Science has several important new product development programs currently underway at existing CASE facilities and will move those to the new JVIC location when it becomes available.  Additional private research firms that will occupy space at JVIC include Nantero, Inc., of Woburn, Massachusetts, and Crosslink of Fenton, Missouri.

The JVIC facilities will occupy the grounds of a restored mill in downtown Springfield. The restoration of this important Springfield landmark will be the centerpiece of rejuvenation efforts in the downtown area.  Brewer Science, together with government officials, MSU, and affiliate JVIC partners, held a groundbreaking ceremony on November 29, 2005, to initiate the renovation of the former mill. Brewer Science anticipates occupation of the floor in 2007. For further information click here and choose Corporate and mention this press release to direct your inquiry to the correct area.
