SOMERSET, NJ—Catalent, a provider of delivery technology, contract development and manufacturing, and consumer health products, will expand its site in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The expansion will add more than 11,000 square feet of production space that will be segregated and designed to handle cytotoxic and highly active products. New equipment includes two manufacturing vessels, a capsule filling line, and six drying tunnels, increasing site capacity by 10 million doses per year. The expansion is forecast to be completed by December 2021.
In other news, the company finished expansions to its consumer health manufacturing facilities in Strathroy, Canada, and Sorocaba, Brazil, both of which provide integrated formulation, manufacturing, and packaging services to the pharmaceutical, consumer health, and beauty industries. The expansions added softgel encapsulation lines to both sites to increase the manufacturing capacity of Catalent’s Vegicaps plant-based capsules and CosmoPod twist-off capsules.
