San Antonio Express-News

Biomedical firm Cytocentrics Inc., headquartered in San Antonio, won the Innovator Award at the recent YTEXAS ReLO Awards.

Cytocentrics CEO James Garvin accepted the honor, which is given to a company that relocated to Texas and is considered to have potential to bolster the state's commerce and culture. Cytocentrics relocated its headquarters and primary operations from Germany to San Antonio earlier this year.

The ReLO Awards focus on corporate relocations and headquarters moves into Dallas-Fort Worth, Austin, San Antonio, and Houston. Nominations are submitted by each region's major economic development organizations, chambers of commerce, and members of YTEXAS.

Cytocentrics agreed to create 300 high-paying jobs in San Antonio and make a $15 million capital investment here in exchanges for a $1 million economic development grant approved by the City Council in June. The company was founded in Germany in 2001.
