TBP is currently home to leading pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical technology companies such as Abbott, Alcon, CIBA Vision, Genentech, GlaxoSmithKline Biologicals, Lonza, Merck Sharp & Dohme, Novartis, Pfizer and Wyeth. These companies have collectively invested US$4 billion to set up manufacturing facilities in TBP.

These companies can also leverage on third- party utilities and services such as steam, natural gas, chilled water and waste treatment.

In addition, TBP offers environmentally-friendly utility solutions that contribute to greater energy efficiency and cost savings.
