“It was at Organon in 2005 when I first learned about BioConnection, right after its inception. It is exciting to see how BioConnection has developed over all those years, particularly with the acquisition of its own manufacturing plant in 2016. It is great to be back in Oss and work with the team at BioConnection on the next steps in the growth journey of this company.”
