It started in 1982. Scientific innovations blossoming out of Michigan State University needed an avenue to reach the people who could use them to better the world — solutions searching for problems. The university reached out to the men who would become NEOGEN’s founders, Ted Doan and James Herbert, and soon after, the company was born.
What started as a small team that held organisation-wide meetings in a single hallway in Lansing, Michigan expanded into new industries and new states, soon reaching across one ocean, then another. Along the way, our goal solidified: to partner with our customers, farm to fork, to elevate the world’s level of food and animal safety.
NEOGEN now employs over 1,800 people globally. Headquartered in Ayr, Scotland; NEOGEN Europe supports the European, Middle Eastern, African & Indian (EMEAI) territories for NEOGEN and employs nearly 350 people across six locations in the UK and Europe.
