I look forward to welcoming new and current customers to see all we offer.”

The 200,000 sq. ft. finishing and warehouse center will incorporate:

  • Four fully automated inspection systems (Korber and Optrel), eight semi-automated (Dabrico), and twelve manual inspection booths.
  • Four labeling and packing lines (Dividella, Uhlmann, Bausch + Ströbel, Marchesini) with future label and pack space.
  • Two autoclaves for product terminal sterilization.
  • QC analytical and sterility lab with sterility isolators (SKAN) to support lyophilized, biologics, and small molecule product testing.
  • Three -50°C walk-in freezers and three walk-in finished product (2-8°C and -20°C) refrigerated frozen units.
  • 30,000 sq. ft. reserved for additional syringe/cartridge filling lines.
