Man­u­fac­tur­ing roundup: Catal­ent breaks ground on $20M ex­pan­sion in Ger­many; For­mer J&J fa­cil­i­ty in PA sold

Catal­ent has kicked off con­struc­tion on a $20 mil­lion ex­pan­sion at its clin­i­cal sup­ply fa­cil­i­ty in Schorn­dorf, Ger­many.

The man­u­fac­tur­er is ex­pand­ing the site by 32,000 square feet with plans to add ca­pac­i­ty for the stor­age of clin­i­cal tri­al sup­ply ma­te­ri­als and to cre­ate space to ac­com­mo­date a new bot­tle-fill­ing line. The work is ex­pect­ed to be fin­ished in June of next year.

“Ad­di­tion­al tem­per­a­ture-con­trolled han­dling, stor­age, and dis­tri­b­u­tion means the fa­cil­i­ty is well-equipped to re­spond to the grow­ing de­mand for clin­i­cal sup­ply ca­pac­i­ty and ser­vices in the re­gion, in­clud­ing for prod­ucts re­quir­ing cold chain sup­port,” said Ricky Hop­son, pres­i­dent and di­vi­sion head for Clin­i­cal De­vel­op­ment & Sup­ply at Catal­ent, in a re­lease.
