DPT has expanded bottle filling capacity with a new line at its manufacturing liquid and semi-solid drugs facility in San Antonio, Texas.

The site – which provides cGMP pilot, clinical and commercial scale manufacturing for prescription and over-the-counter products – is one of three “Centers of Excellence” DPT set up in 2010 as part of an efficiency drive​.

Site general manager Lyle Flom said: “The addition of this high-speed filling center supports current demand, provides for future growth and helps DPT maintain its leadership position in semi-solid and liquid manufacturing​.”

The line can fill up to 200 bottles a minute according to DPT, which said the new filling capability provides “bright stock supply chain services to clients seeking an external solution to their private label manufacturing needs​.”

The investment is the second client-driven expansion DPT has made in as many months​. In September the contract manufacturing organisation (CMO) bought a plant in New Jersey from Sweden-based erectile dysfunction drug developer, Meda.

 At the time Gene Ciolfi, vice president and general manager of the CMO’s Lakewood site operations said: “The Meda Pharmaceuticals space allows us to meet the needs of our clients today and beyond.”
