Syngenta has chosen to redevelop its North American Crop Protection headquarters on the current campus location in Greensboro, North Carolina.
The company intends to construct a more than 100,000 square-foot office building to connect with its existing laboratory facility on the north side of the 70-acre campus. Plans also include a complete renovation of the lab facilities. The new workspaces will support about 650 employees and 100 contract workers.
Construction is expected to begin on the new building later this year and the entire project is expected take about three years to complete. Syngenta is assessing options for the south side of its campus.
In early January 2020, Syngenta announced it had engaged in a comprehensive assessment of is current facilities on Swing Road. The large campus, with 17 structures, was established in the mid-1960’s and was later acquired by a Syngenta legacy company, Ciba-Geigy. Syngenta was formed in 2000 and this site has remained one of the company’s major workplaces in the U.S.
