Symborg doubles its global workforce to over 100

The biotech company has doubled its number of workers globally in just 2 years, going from 55 staff members at the beginning of 2019 to 110 in the early 2021.

Symborg, the agricultural biotechnology company, continues its growth and now has over 100 employees. In its current phase of internationalization, and despite the pandemic situation, the biotech company has doubled its number of workers globally in just 2 years, going from 55 staff members at the beginning of 2019 to 110 in the early 2021.

“As a company, it is clear to us that the best strategy is to go for talent,” says Marcelino Vicente, Symborg’s Human Capital Director. “Our purpose as an organization is to transform agriculture. Innovating, developing sustainable products and helping farmers requires a highly trained and committed team”. As a result, 95% of Symborg’s employees have higher education qualifications and 10% have a PhD.

With 9 subsidiaries worldwide and a commercial presence in more than 50 countries, Symborg continues to expand internationally. “Proportionally, the country where we have grown the most in terms of human capital is the United States. In 2019, the US team had 3 people, and started 2021 with 16”, explains Vicente. Likewise, in these last two years, the growth of the new subsidiaries in Peru and France is remarkable, with teams of 5 and 6 workers respectively.
