Global environmental science firm Smithers Viscient moved into their facility in Harrogate this week and has started transferring its 67 locally-based staff to the new site.

The base for its European headquarters is now in the old National Milk Records offices on Skipton Road, and the new labs there will be used for studies in pharmaceutical, industrial chemical, and animal health industries, ensuring products are safe for the environment.

The company, which has more than 620 employees based largely in America and Japan, conducts aquatic and plant studies with a focus on earthworms, arthropods, and fish species, and has also contributed to the safety of bees.
