Chinese Biotech Firm Opens Iowa Office

Origin ArtiTech is a Chinese germplasm and biotechnology-focused crop seed provider that has established a North American headquarters in Des Moines, Iowa.

This move represents a key step in a series of strategic actions to position Origin as a leading global foundation biotech and seed development company. Over the past six months, the company has also expanded partnerships on biotech traits globally and established a new leadership team.

Origin’s CEO Bill Niebur, CFO Shashank Aurora and team members will office at the Des Moines location.

Key biotech and seed breeding operations will continue to be based in China, including the plant breeding and biotech research and development center, the Xinjiang Originbo seed company and the critical off-season winter nursery in Hainan. Chief Technology Officer Jihong Liang will oversee operations in China from Beijing.
