FPS Food and Pharma Systems has announced it is expanding its production plant in Fiorenzuola d’Arda for greater flexibility and timeliness on production systems.
A leading company in design, manufacture, and installation of fine size reduction machines for micronising and containment solutions for sterile and/or highly potent active pharmaceutical ingredients (API), FPS Food and Pharma Systems has disclosed the beginning of the plant’s enlargement in Fiorenzuola d’Arda.
The expansion is designed to improve the production process management and allow a significant increase in production capacity.
Adjacent to the current facility, the new area is composed of approximately 3000m2 covered and 3000m2 uncovered land, which will be dedicated to the assembly and testing of FPS’ systems. A further area will be dedicated to the assembly execution and storage of mock-up.
An equipped cafeteria and training classroom will also be available soon, with technical workshops planned for 2017.
The venue was recently enlarged and modernised with the construction of a new offices area and a research and development (R&D) test centre. The facilities’ redesigns help it adapt to the company’s needs.
FPS Food and Pharma Services’ vice-president and technical manager Carlo Corsini said: "It’s been months since the inauguration of the new area dedicated to the R&D and Test Center but, the steady development, has made necessary to plan, in few time, new works programed with foresight and carried out with determination in order to strengthen the logistics structure."
The company’s president Giovanni Gianola added: "With the increase of production capacity of the site of Fiorenzuola d’Arda Plant, FPS renews its commitment to the improvement and development of micronisation and fine grinding systems, as well as containment solutions.
"We are proud of Italian excellence; we can confirm the current employment level and to show to our territory the new factory, which will allow us to be even more competitive for the benefit of our customers."
