On the cusp of a six-month-plus addition and expansion of EmCyte Corporation’s headquarters – 4331 Veronica S. Shoemaker Blvd. in Fort Myers – Seagate Development Group will begin yet another phase at the ever-evolving facility. Geared toward regenerative technology as a standard of care in modern medicine, the company has requested the renovation of an engineered space in its original building.
This announcement comes just ahead of Seagate’s completion of EmCyte’s $2.2-million project – a 13,000-plus-square-foot climate-controlled warehouse addition for medical devices and a nearly 2,000-square-foot office suite and lab in the original building. Just months ago, Seagate also completed the renovation of its approximately 5,000-square-foot manufacturing space.
The leading, full-service development company has partnered with the leading autologous regenerative biologics company for three years on remodels, reconfigurations, technological advancements and additions to its headquarters. This is all part of an increase in EmCyte’s team members, services, investments and overall presence across the U.S. and around the globe.
“When President & CEO Patrick Pennie described his vision for his company, we knew we were going to be part of something bigger than ourselves, “said Matt Price, CEO & Partner at Seagate Development Group. “Our team thought a lot about the use of the facility today and in the future as well as the economic value it’s bringing to Southwest Florida. As a result, we’re ready for the next steps, regardless of the size and scope.”
Plans for a fifth EmCyte phase of exterior renovations are in the works.
