NEWCASTLE, UK: Aesica, a leading pharmaceutical manufacturer, opened a new purpose built $4.6 million high potency manufacturing facility for the manufacture of formulated products; the company has confirmed plans to upgrade its active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) manufacturing facilities, enabling it to manufacture high potency APIs at commercial scale. The ability to offer high potency manufacturing on a larger scale is particularly important for the company’s further growth in the API arena, as Aesica will be able to offer high containment from the kilo lab to the pilot plant and to full commercial scale production.

“The evolution of drug development and the increasing potency of compounds have meant that more customers are looking to outsource high containment drug manufacturing. We predict our new high containment formulated product facility and this latest investment in high potency API production will play a pivotal role in increasing our share of the contract manufacturing market. When it comes to high potency drugs, we are a leader among UK and the new facility demonstrates our desire to become the name in high containment manufacturing,” said Dr Robert Hardy, CEO, Aesica.
