Svanova Biotech new tenant in Uppsala Business Park


There is continuing interest in establishment in Uppsala Business Park. Klövern
has signed a five-year lease contract with the biotech company Svanova with an
annual rent of SEK 3 million.

Svanova, which is moving into to over 2,000 sq.m. in February 2011, has an
option to expand its premises with an additional 800 sq.m. The premises consist
of development laboratories, biotech production and offices.

”Svanovais a very attractive addition to Uppsala Business Park which complements
the existing over 50 tenants in a very good way”, says Klövern’s CEO Gustaf
Hermelin. ”We have a good mix of large and small tenants within both Life
Science and public sector activities.”

When Klövern acquired the property Fyrislund 6:6 in Uppsala in spring 2006, half
of the property was vacant and it was known that the whole property would be
vacant by 2008 at the latest. Letting has been successful since then. The
Svanova lease is the sixth large new lease contract entered into by Klövern in
the past 18 months. Now, taking into account the new Svanova lease, the
occupancy rate is approximately 55 per cent.

Svanovadevelops, manufactures, markets and sells diagnostic products within
veterinary medicine and food hygiene for laboratories and vets. This product
range is used for diagnoses of, for example salmonella and foot-and-mouth
disease, among livestock herds. Svanova now has around 30 employees and all
operations are located at Uppsala Science Park. The products are sold throughout
the world and the distribution network covers more than 80 countries.

”Expansion is a important keyword in our activity today. We believe in the
company’s development and know that exciting new markets are opening up, in
North and South America, among other places”, says Svanova’s CEO Christina
Frimodig. ”To be able to continue to expand, we need larger premises that are
better adapted to production, which we will have at Uppsala Business Park.”
