Biotech hub of the future

At the beginning of 2022, we moved our headquarters to the new biotech hub in the north of Munich - SKYGATE Hallbergmoos - and are actively shaping the future of biotechnology together with our colleagues from the life sciences sector.

The SKYGATE Campus is centrally located in the north of Munich in the Munich Airport Business Park (MABP) in Munich-Hallbergmoos. Biotech companies find ideal conditions for working, researching and networking here. For vermicon AG, this results in numerous advantages, new opportunities and synergies offered by the biotechnology cluster that has been created here.
