OVERLAND PARK, KS (Mar 19, 2018) – ERBER Group, the holding company for five divisions including BIOMIN America and Romer Labs®, has established its new ERBER Group hub in Overland Park, a suburb of Kansas City. The move brings BIOMIN and Romer Labs closer to each other and their respective customers, offering further support with an expanded team of industry experts.
BIOMIN America Inc., a leading research company and producer of feed additives, has sustained continued growth in the North American market which has afforded it the opportunity to relocate the regional headquarters to Overland Park from San Antonio.
“The animal health corridor just became stronger and more attractive with the addition of Biomin locating its regional headquarters in Overland Park,” said Overland Park Mayor Carl Gerlach. “This is great news for consumers and producers, and for Overland Park.”
The KC region is home to more than 300 animal health companies, representing the largest concentration of animal health and diagnostics in the world. Simon Walley, President of BIOMIN North America, adds “the move will help us provide ever more expert technical and commercial support to our customers across the US and Canada… The abundance of qualified workforce coupled with ease of travel for global employees, made Kansas City the right choice for our new North American presence,” Walley stated.
Over the past two years, alongside robust recruitment, BIOMIN has made significant investments into the marketplace by introducing dynamic products and services. BIOMIN primarily services animal production customers within the poultry, swine, and ruminant industries.
The ERBER Group worked in close partnership with the Kansas Department of Commerce and the Overland Park Chamber Economic Development Council on this relocation project.
