On Friday, June 4th, Lincoln Property Company, Arranta Bio and Vibalogics hosted a tree planting ceremony at 1414 Massachusetts Avenue in Boxborough to recognize a significant donation from each organization to the Boxborough Conservation Trust (BCT) a private, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization founded in 1997 to preserve and protect Boxborough Massachusetts’s rural character and natural resources.

Over 40 employees from LPC, Arranta and Vibalogics attended the event and enjoyed complimentary ice cream served by TC Scoops.

Mark Bamforth, Executive Chairman and CEO of Arranta and Tom Hochuli, CEO of Vibalogics delivered opening remarks. There were also remarks from Scott Brown, Executive Vice President at Lincoln Property Company, BCTrust President Rita Grossman, and John Markiewicz, a member of the Boxborough Select Board.

Vibalogics, a global virotherapy contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO), Arranta Bio (“Arranta”), the leading microbiome CDMO, are both tenants of LPC and each company is developing the former Cisco Systems Inc. facility at 1414 Massachusetts Ave into a state-of-the-art cGMP biopharmaceutical manufacturing facility.

The Boxborough site is being developed in phases, and work for Vibalogics has been approved by the planning board. The total investment in the facility is expected to exceed $200 million and employ around 400 employees between the two companies. The facilities for both companies are designed to flexibly support clients, including dedicated lab and biomanufacturing capacity that can support commercial manufacturing and supply life-changing medicine.
