Sigma-Aldrich to expand manufacturing facility in Irvine, Scotland

ST LOUIS, US: Sigma-Aldrich Corporation announced that SAFC, its custom manufacturing and services business unit, will expand its manufacturing plant in Irvine, Scotland to include large-scale production of bulk dry power media and reagents. Designed to support the expanding needs of the European and Asia Pacific market, SAFC’s Irvine facility expansion will result in redundant manufacturing capabilities in conjunction with SAFC’s existing dry powder media facility in Lenexa, US.

Ground breaking for the new facility is expected to commence in March 2013 and should be manufacturing-ready in the first quarter of 2014. Once complete, the facility will be one of the most modern and fit-for-purpose media facilities in the industry.

“We remain committed to investing in areas where we can deliver tangible value for our global customer base. These investments and subsequent customer benefits continue to set SAFC apart as a supplier of choice in the industry. We are grateful to Scotland’s First Minister, Alex Salmond, and Scottish Enterprise for their support with this expansion in Scotland,” said Gilles Cottier, President, SAFC.
