“Establishing and expanding facilities around the world better positions ACG to accommodate a growing roster of clients within the industry,”​ added the spokesperson.

ACG’s Brazilian facility has met the standards set by the Brazilian Health Regulatory Agency (ANVISA), as well as passing good manufacturing practice (GMP) inspection by regulatory bodies.
