Yeast Technology Company Grows Into Vista
VISTA, CA: In a move that brings a vital resource closer to the San Diego biotechnology community, OYC Americas has expanded from their east coast office into a new Customer Operations Center in Vista, California.
A wholly-owned subsidiary of Oriental Yeast Company headquartered in Japan, OYC Americas provides raw materials derived from yeast fermentation technology for clinical diagnostics, pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, and the food and functional food industries. Used in products ranging from diagnostics and gene research to biofuels research and manufacturing, yeast technology plays an essential role in today’s medical and biotech fields – a role that’s growing as the demand for fermentation increases.
Ted Kottcamp, President of OYC Americas, says this new Customer Operations Center is an important advance in their ability to deliver Japanese quality with American responsiveness and flexible customer service.
“Our customers will certainly notice how this expansion improves our ability to serve them,” said Kottcamp, speaking from the new office. “Having our Operations Center here in Vista allows us to streamline supply-chain logistics with our parent company in Japan. And that means we anticipate real improvements to our already high standards of customer service.”
“On top of that,” Kottcamp added, “we have enhanced warehousing facilities here, with both room-temperature and refrigerated storage – so we can be even more responsive to our customers’ needs since we have the local warehousing capacity to meet anticipated demand.”
This expansion aligns OYC Americas with global expansion plans announced on New Year’s Day by their Japanese parent. And it brings a rich source of biotechnology materials – or more specifically, yeast technology materials – to Southern California.
“Of course we’re looking forward to being a vital part of the San Diego biotech community,” said Kottcamp. “More importantly, though, we’re looking forward to being a part of the San Diego business community as a whole. This area has so much to offer, and we’re delighted to be here and to be able to contribute!”
