Vaxess Technologies, Cummings Park, Woburn

"With incredible support from Cummings, Vaxess was able to go from an empty building shell to a cleanroom producing GMP clinical material in less than one year. Cummings’ in-house architecture and construction teams worked closely with us every step of the way to deliver our space ahead of schedule and on budget, a rarity in greater Boston's current real estate market. Because of their support and reasonable costs, Vaxess has already expanded from 3,600 SF to 10,000 SF in Woburn."
