KD PHARMA FURTHER EXPANDS ITS CDMO CAPABILITIES IN THE UK MANUFATURING SITE
BIOGGIO, SWITZERLAND – October 18, 2021 – The KD Pharma Group has completed an expansion of its manufacturing site in Seal Sands, United Kingdom. The new modern plant followed a fast-track build project and triples the capacity of the site. The plant features four state of the art high performance extraction units (HPEs) and associated equipment to enable KD Pharma to produce ultrapure omega-3 for both nutraceutical and pharmaceutical use– not only from the more traditional fish sources, but also algae derived omega-3. The facility is highly automated and has a capacity of several thousand tonnes per annum.
“These new manufacturing assets are the first step to a number of additional strategic investments to transform KD Pharma’s UK site into a world-class CDMO facility with capabilities in lipids and small molecule synthesis,” said Oscar Groet, CEO of the KD Pharma Group, “Expanding our capacity is essential to meet market demand”.
This construction is the first milestone planned for the expansion of the Seal Sands site, which will end in 2022 with the construction of a new multi-purpose cGMP CDMO plant to manufacture Pharmaceutical intermediates and API’s.
The ambitious plan will result in a modern, integrated manufacturing site capable of manufacturing small molecules from lab to production scale. It will enable an expansion of KD Pharma‘s unique technology and service portfolio from its core omega-3 market to the broader pharmaceutical industry.
