Ceva invests $8.3M into Kansas facility

Ceva Animal Health is expanding its operations in the U.S. again, with an $8.3 million cash injection to its facility in Lenexa, KS.

The expansion will add 10,000 square feet to the 43,000-square-foot facility and also sink $2 million into equipping it. Remodeling has already begun to build more production space.

Ceva has made a series of acquisitions, including acquiring Biomune in 2005. The company spent $7 million on expanding Biomune's former R&D facility.

In 2011, Ceva invested $18 million into opening a poultry vaccine facilitie that spanned 55,000 square feet. Just last month, Ceva completed its integration of Sogeval Animal Health, a producer in dermatology, pain and mobility, and gastrointestinal health veterinary products.

Ceva Animal Health is the American branch of Ceva Sante Animale--founded in 1999, when the former Sanofi-Aventis subsidiary completed the first of four leveraged buyouts. Ceva Sante Animale is based out of Libourne, France.
