Swedish CDMO Recipharm has invested €600,000 in new filling capacity with the aim of increasing its client base.
The firm has added a ‘state of the art’ integrated Dara cartridge filling machine for injectable drugs at its facility in Monts, France, which it claims can fill and close as many as 7200 units per hour without causing particulate release.
Michel Saudemon, general manager of the plant, said: “Whilst we have for many years filled cartridges in Monts, this new machine allows us to offer a wider client base access to this capability. This should not only reduce lead times but also increase reliability and flexibility.”
The investment comes just weeks after Recipharm secured a loan that it said would be used to expand its manufacturing capabilities.
