15.01.2024 - China-headquartered contract research, development and manufacturing organization (CRDMO) WuXi Biologics plans to increase the manufacturing capacity of its US facility in Worcester, Massachusetts to 36,000 l, 12,000 l more than the originally planned 24,000 l.

Construction of the new 189,500-square-foot facility is underway and WuXi expects the site to be operational in 2025 with GMP release in 2026.

According to WuXi, the expansion of the facility will add another 200 employees to the current 400 in the USA.
