Columbia, SC – DPX Technologies, a manufacturer of laboratory consumable products, has invested more than $2.5 million and announced an expansion in Columbia, SC. The biotechnology company purchased and renovated a 12,000 sq. ft facility on 5 acres in the SCRA Carolina Research Park.
DPX manufactures patented sample preparation products and specializes in custom workflows for a diverse client base including clinical, forensic, food safety, and pharmaceutical industries. Their products offer sample preparation solutions that are compatible with semi-automated and fully automated liquid handling systems. This enables high sample throughput and high laboratory efficiency.
DPX was founded in 2007 by Dr. William Brewer, a University of South Carolina alum and former senior chemistry instructor and research associate. The company originally joined the USC Columbia Technology Incubator and opened a manufacturing facility on the enterprise campus of Midlands Technical College. DPX also utilized space at the USC IDEA Labs for research and development. After seeing tremendous growth over the years, DPX has purchased and renovated a building that now houses manufacturing and R&D in one facility.
“Our decision to expand in Columbia and set up our facility in the research park allows us to continue to strengthen the relationships we have made in South Carolina. We have a lot of people to thank for our success and we are excited for this next phase of growth,” said Kaylee Mastrianni, PhD., Director of Operations of DPX Technologies. “We have already launched several new products this year, and we have more in the pipeline.”
DPX has established their office at 19 Technology Circle within the SCRA Carolina Research Park. Beyond the facility, DPX has made investments in state-of-the-art equipment to help produce quality products and promote top-of-the-line research and development. The company has started recruiting and hiring for new jobs and expects to onboard 5-6 full-time and part-time employees in 2019.
