MUSKEGO, Wis. – Biocut Systems, a process automation company that helps bioscience companies advance their products from the laboratory to production, plans to move into a new headquarters complex to be built along the Commerce Center Parkway in Muskego.
Biocut Systems, which does business as Xiogenix, plans to move into the 75,000-square-foot complex in the spring of 2023, when the company will move from its current home at 8219 W. Bradley Road in Milwaukee.
The company’s leadership team is excited about the new name, as it reflects the firm’s mission of aiding in human recovery. According to the team, “Xio” means “ready for battle or ready to start,” and “Genix” means “adaptable, dependable and generational.”
The new building in Muskego is being designed and constructed by Brookfield-based Briohn Building Corp.
Don Melnikoff, president of Biocut Systems, said the company has outgrown its current site and has plans for additional growth as it evolves from its roots as a tool-and-die shop to a provider of tissue banking and gene and cell therapy automation solutions.
The Biocut Systems leadership team also includes: John Reimer, vice president of business development, who focuses on strategic relationships; and Jared Koch, vice president of product innovation, who leads the effort of Biocut’s innovative and creative engineering.
The new building is being developed by Muskego Biotech LLC and its partners Jerry Jendusa, Becky Jendusa, Nelson Williams, Brent Jones and Jason Steiner.
Biocut Systems was recently named among the winners of the 2022 Future 50 Awards of the fastest-growing companies in southeastern Wisconsin by the Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce and BizTimes Media and was voted in 2020 and 2021 as a “Best Place To Work” by Milwaukee Business Journal.
