Cresa has worked with Amyris over their entire lifespan as they expanded from 3 to more than 250 people. Cresa helped Amyris expand their lab and office space in a constrained market through creative lease arrangements and by being ahead of the curve. The incremental expansion has allowed Amyris to control expansion and preserve cash during a time of rapid growth.
