Oak Ridge-based MCLinc has purchased a 41,000-square-foot facility located on Mitchell Road in the Secret City where it will move its new lab and headquarters in early 2019 after remodeling a portion of the facility. The building will include a new laboratory and office space, along with approximately 16,000-square-feet of space that will be rented to other tenants.
“While our original plan was to build a new laboratory in Horizon Center, time constraints of construction of the facility made it necessary for us to look at other opportunities,” said Barry Stephenson, MCLinc President and Chief Executive Officer. “We are committed to our employees and to the community of Oak Ridge where we have operated for the past 20 years, and we’re excited about what the future holds as we expand our laboratory and staff.”
In addition to saving 20 current positions with the move, MCLinc forecasts adding 26 new positions during the first five years of operations in its new facility. MCLinc is an applied research company that provides environmental, chemical process optimization and industrial forensics consulting and analytical testing services, have turned the old, on-site laboratory at K-25 into a successful company.
