Catalent Completes Expansion at Singapore Facility
Catalent Pharma Solutions has completed the $4.6 million expansion at its Singapore clinical supply facility, announced in Feb. 2016. The New Jersey, USA-based company said the expansion provides additional GMP space for secondary packaging, has doubled ambient storage, and quadrupled cold storage capacity at the site.
The facility is a key strategic hub in Catalent’s Asia-Pacific network and global clinical supply business, supporting multinational customers’ growing needs for full clinical supply services, while providing flexible solutions for local customers in the region.
According to Catalent the site has seen significant growth since opening in 1998, almost tripling in size and now standing at almost 20,000 square feet, with headcount also tripling since 2012.
“We are particularly pleased to have completed the expansion in a year that marks the 20th anniversary of what was Catalent’s first facility in the Asia-Pacific region,” commented Bernie Clark, VP marketing, Catalent Clinical Supply Services. He added: “Supported by many long-serving employees, the Singapore site has undergone tremendous growth over the past two decades and now routinely distributes to 18 countries in the region.”
