MoA Technology has taken a 5,400 sq ft laboratory and office space at the Bellhouse Building at The Oxford Science Park (TOSP).

The firm, which provides technology for weed control for farmers, is an Oxford University spinout, employing 25 people with plans to expand further. It is the third occupier of the new building.

Chief executive Dr Virginia Corless said: “Relocating to the Bellhouse Building puts us at the heart of a vibrant community of innovation.

“MoA Technology is delighted to be in our new facilities, which will allow us to accelerate the development of novel mode of action herbicides, solving an urgent problem for farmers today and becoming building blocks of a sustainable agricultural future.”

Rory Maw, bursar of Magdalen College and interim managing director of TOSP, said: “As our first plant sciences-based occupier, MoA Technology is a great addition to the innovation mix on the park. We welcome it to the Bellhouse Building where it will be located alongside Enara Bio and Sitryx.”
