LFB Plasma announced today the acquisition of the ImmunoTek Bio Center located at 4560 Lake Worth Road, Greenacres, FL 33463. LFB Plasma is part of the LFB Group, a global bio-pharmaceutical company that develops and provides plasma-derived and recombinant products through its innovative technologies to patients with chronic and serious diseases. The acquisition of the plasma collection center in Greenacres is the first step in establishing a reliable and consistent supply of U.S. plasma.
Jose Antonio Moreno Toscano, LFB USA's CEO, said today, "We are excited about our expansion into South Florida, and we look forward to a successful transition of the ImmunoTek center in Greenacres. We are thankful for the staff who has participated in the build-up of this center and are keeping all 23 employees there, providing each staff member the benefits of being part of our global bio-pharmaceutical company. Our extended plans include not only additional Florida plasma donation center locations but expansion of centers into other states. We are particularly happy to be part of community growth and development and hope to make a long-term and sustainable economic impact at the local level. Ultimately, each donation of plasma has the potential to provide a lifesaving treatment to those in need, and we are forever grateful for each donation."
ImmunoTek Bio Centers was responsible for constructing and operating the Greenacres center since it opened in 2017. "We are pleased to reach this first milestone in our cooperative partnership with LFB and are looking forward to a strong business alliance that increases access to life-saving plasma," said Jerome Parnell III, CEO & President of ImmunoTek.
