BW: Workplace Experts and Bulb Laboratories today announced they have entered into an agreement to jointly deliver high value research, innovation and manufacturing facilities in the science and technology sector.

The tie-up between BW and Bulb Laboratories will help both companies better meet evolving demand from laboratory users, property investors and owners for flexible environments that can incorporate the rise of automation and the increasing importance of computational approaches.

“This is an exciting step as we bring together the best of both companies to enable, design and build advanced laboratories,“ said Steve Elliott, CEO, of BW: Workplace Experts. “This, together with our alliances with overseas partners, HITT and SHAPE, is a strategic partnership that strengthens our vertical capabilities as we continue to expand our services portfolio.”
