IC Biomedical Establishes Cartersville, Georgia, Manufacturing Complex
The company will operate in a recently constructed 75,000-square-foot facility located on Cass-White Road. According to state officials, the demand for medical-grade freezers continues to surge.
“IC Biomedical is committed to manufacturing class-leading products with innovation, quality, and technical excellence,” said CEO of IC Biomedical Steve Shaw. “Georgia was the obvious choice for us, a highly trained workforce, transport links, and a state infrastructure committed to the life science sector that is able to support our business in a way no other location could offer.”
“Recent events have proven the importance of IC Biomedical’s products within our global health ecosystems,” said GDEcD Commissioner Pat Wilson. “Home to top-ranked research universities and organizations including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Task Force for Global Health, Georgia is a hotbed for every aspect of the life sciences industry, from research and development to production and distribution. I’m confident IC Biomedical will find great success here, and I thank Steve Shaw for reinvesting in his hometown.”
IC Biomedical manufactures premium cryogenic equipment, including stainless steel and aluminum freezers, Dewars, shippers, and other custom equipment used for safe storage and transportation of medical products such as vaccines, therapies, and other biological specimens.
“Congratulations to IC Biomedical on the selection of Cartersville for their new manufacturing facility,” said Katie Kirkpatrick, president and CEO of the Metro Atlanta Chamber. “We are pleased to have IC Biomedical join metro Atlanta’s growing life sciences community with assets like Emory School of Medicine, Morehouse School of Medicine, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Georgia Tech and the many businesses engaged in research, development, manufacturing, and distribution of life science related products and supplies.”
