“Organic growth” business model

Development of quality DSP products for the Bio-Pharmaceutical industry requires focus, time and patience. At the start of Proxcys in 2003 this was the main reason for Marcel Raedts, current owner and CEO, to decide for the "organic growth" business model.

In 2010 Proxcys moved into a new and larger facility of > 1000m2 in Nieuw-Amsterdam where clean assembly & production possibilities are created. In July 2020 Proxcys moved again, this time to a 2700m2 facility in Emmen. In the new building, a modern working environment and a number of new activities are created: Clean-rooms for pre-packed SUPR columns, extended training facilities, development space and an extended Toolshop.
