SHL, a leading manufacturer of drug delivery devices, will further expand operations in the US with the establishment of SHL Pharma Systems, a state-of-the-art final assembly and packaging operation. Located in South Florida (US), this new facility will offer final assembly, labelling and packaging services to SHL’s pharmaceutical and biotech customers. The new Florida facility is scheduled to be operational in Q1 of 2011.
Lucio Giambattista, executive vice president SHL Group and managing director SHL Medical USA, commented on the expansion, stating: “We are excited about this latest expansion project as it is very customer driven. We have built up close relationships with some of the world’s largest pharma and biotech companies over the years and this facility will allow us to offer even more services to these partners. Now, with packaging, labelling and distribution services available in-house, SHL will truly be a one-stop-shop for drug delivery devices, from product design to delivery.”
SHL has been significantly expanding facilities and recruiting new employees as the result of several recently signed long-term supply agreements. In addition to the new Florida facility, SHL has already publicly announced capital expenditures of over $100 million and is forecasting to globally hire 1,000 new employees over the next few years.
