Salt Lake City, Utah October 21, 2013–Cytozyme Laboratories, Inc. hosted a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony to celebrate the relocation of their headquarters to the City of South Salt Lake on Tuesday, October 16th, 2013.

“What an incredible company we now have in the City of South Salt Lake!” said Gary Birdsall, President & CEO, South Salt Lake Chamber of Commerce. “Chamber and City officials were honored to be part of the ribbon-cutting ceremony at Cytozyme.

The 107,000+ square foot building will allow the company to quadruple their production as they commit to a NEW Cytozyme of Sustainable Solutions to increase world food production. Cytozyme was founded in 1975, but within the past five years they have increased sales 267%, more than triple the revenue of 2007. Revenue has increased 30% alone from 2012 to 2013. The time for a larger building, with more space to continue growth was inevitable.
