Global property group Goodman has agreed a 5,181 sq ft letting to US medical specialists, LifeCell at Oxford Business Park. The company will occupy part of building 4650 Kingsgate. Goodman, which owns, develops and manages the Park will welcome LifeCell to its new premises this month.

Headquartered in New Jersey, USA, LifeCell is a pioneer in the science of regenerative medicine. Since 1994 it has been producing products that allow surgeons to restore tissue damaged through injury, surgery or disease. One of its core products, Strattice (TM) Reconstructive Tissue Matrix was successfully launched across Europe in 2008 and the business continues to grow and develop in the EMEA Market Place.
James Raven, Development Director, Goodman UK Business Parks said:

“We are very pleased that LifeCell has chosen Oxford Business Park as the location to develop its operations. We have a growing number of medical specialists based at the Park, having welcomed healthcare experts, Microvisk to the Park in November and the Blackberry Clinic in December. LifeCell will make a valuable contribution to this community and we look forward to its continued success.”

Brad Tyler, Vice President, EMEA Business, LifeCell said:
“As we looked to enhance our offering in the EMEA market place, we sought an office with access to intellectual capital and conveniently located for our employees and customers. With this aim, Oxford Business Park is the perfect location for us and we welcome the opportunity to contribute to the growing cluster of healthcare solutions providers at the Park.”

Oxford Business Park is home to a flourishing local business network and to over 65 companies, including household names such as Oxfam, BT and Centrica, whose new 81,000 square foot headquarters was recently completed at the Park. The Park has extensive onsite amenities, mature landscaping and is well placed for access to Oxford city centre and the wider South East and Midlands regions.
