Cambrex, manufacturer of small molecule innovator and generic Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs), announced a SEK 72 million ($ 9 million) investment to expand large scale manufacturing capacity at its Karlskoga facility in Sweden.
East Rutherford/USA — The investment includes the installation of new multi-purpose reactors ranging from 4 to 12m 3 and upgrading of the control room within an existing plant on site. The new facilities will undergo validation and cGMP qualification ahead of the operational startup in Q4 2016.
