GSK in­fus­es $120M in­to next-gen man­u­fac­tur­ing fa­cil­i­ties at Up­per Meri­on, PA

In the lat­est move to bring its man­u­fac­tur­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties up to speed with the lat­est tech­no­log­i­cal ad­vances, Glax­o­SmithK­line has ded­i­cat­ed $120 mil­lion to an ex­pan­sion at its long­time site in Up­per Meri­on, Penn­syl­va­nia.

The up­grade is meant to ren­der the fa­cil­i­ty more flex­i­ble than tra­di­tion­al man­u­fac­tur­ing op­er­a­tions, GSK said. You can ex­pect to see sin­gle-use and dis­pos­able com­po­nents, al­low­ing for a quick tran­si­tion be­tween the pro­duc­tion of one med­i­cine to an­oth­er; stream­lined qual­i­ty and com­mer­cial test­ing process­es; as well as a new an­a­lyt­i­cal lab.
