Recipharm has announced investment into a new facility in Uttarakhand, India which will see its fill finish capacity increase to 1 billion sterile units per year.
The facility will be constructed on a greenfield site near Dehradun in Uttarakhand and is a joint project between Recipharm and the Sobti family.
Ready to begin production following approval from the local authorities
The new site, which is designed for approval to supply the EU and US is now ready to begin production following approval from the local authorities. It will be delivering ampoules, vials filled with liquid and powder, lyophilised vials, dental cartridges and pre-filled syringes.
“This is a great milestone for our ongoing partnership with the Sobti family. From the new facility we’ll be able to provide customers with invaluable access to high quality sterile fill & finish capacity, which is in huge demand globally. A lot of hard work has gone in to ensuring the success of this project and we’re delighted to see it come to fruition,” says Marc Funk, CEO of Recipharm.
The new facility is the latest development in Recipharm’s partnership with the Sobti family which began in 2019 when Recipharm invested in Nichepharm.
The next step for the project will be to obtain authorisation from the European authorities.
The facility will allow Recipharm to further increase its offering in sterile fill & finish service as it complements its three other sterile filling capabilities in France, Germany and Italy, it states.
