Jubilant HollisterStier Sterile Expansion Project Underway
Montreal, QC, Canada., August 14, 2013 Jubilant HollisterStier announced today that the Montreal-based manufacturing facility has completed the first phase of an expansion of their sterile manufacturing capacity, with the addition of a new ampoule filling line utilizing a rigid barrier system. This expansion of capacity is a continuation of improvements being made to further enhance the site's sterile manufacturing capabilities.
The new manufacturing area will expand ampoule manufacturing capacity in Montreal by nearly two hundred percent. In addition, expansions to the sterile areas at Jubilant HollisterStier have been optimized through successful implementation of Lean and Six Sigma initiatives.
The new area is scheduled to be ready for product on September 9th 2013. A significant portion of the expanded capacity has already been allocated to new customer products that will be manufactured at the site.
"We are excited to complete this phase of our optimization strategy in sterile manufacturing. Our site in Montreal will be well positioned to continue offering multiple dosage platforms for our global customers. We have been fortunate to secure several new contracts that will utilize our expanded capacity starting this year" said Jubilant HollisterStier Chief Executive Officer, Marcelo Morales.
