Portuguese active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) and intermediates manufacturer Hovione announced the expansion of its New Jersey facility in East Windsor, USA.
This investment is part of the company’s strategy to increase its global development and commercial capacity to meet the increasing demands of Hovione’s customers.
The expansion will add an additional 30,600 ft² (2,843 m²) to the 24,000ft² (2,211m²) facility. It will introduce a new commercial spray dryer unit to complement their existing pilot unit and this installation will be specifically designed to handle potent drug substances (APIs). In addition the expansion will more than double the drug substance capacity at the site to support the needs of the current and future customer base. The expansion is expected to add approximately 60 new jobs to the current workforce.
The official ground breaking should occur in the first quarter of 2016 and the doubling of capacity is expected to be fully operational in early 2017.
