Company News Release

Almac’s Pharma Services

business unit has announced the completion of a $13.75 million expansion to the company’s existing facilities at the Group’s headquarters in Craigavon, Northern Ireland.
 
The completion of a three story extension to the existing commercial manufacture facility in June 2009 expanded Pharma Services’ laboratory and office areas by 30,000 ft2. The new laboratories aim to enhance the existing analytical and microbiological drug product support services.
 
Remodelling of the now 120,000 ft2 commercial manufacture facility was completed in March 2010. Remodeling included expansion in microbiological and sterility test areas, new yellow light labs, and office and meeting room expansion. Method development, validation, and transfer supporting multiple client projects, are offered over a wide range of technologies from our expanded facility.
 
Graeme McBurney, President & M.D of Almac Pharma Services commented: “Increased client demand for our integrated services has resulted in the strategic decision to make this investment and expansion, both in terms of space and the additional team members we are recruiting. I look forward to working with the current and new members of our team.”
