Central Virginia business is often associated with agriculture, tourism and wineries. Biochemistry and enzyme production? Not so much.
BIO-CAT Inc. is looking to change that. The enzyme production company will celebrate 30 years in business next month, and it’s come a long way since opening with three employees in 1988.
Once based out of founder Ed Schuler’s house, BIO-CAT now employs more than 50 people at the Troy facility that houses its operations, and they’re not done expanding yet. The company is actively hiring as increasing demand for enzymes keeps the company busy, according to vice president of sales and marketing Mark Walin.
