Catalent Pharma Solutions’ Clinical Supply Services business is expanding its global cold-chain supply capabilities in the U.S., UK, and Germany. The company plans to complete expansion at its sites in Bolton, UK and Schorndorf, Germany by the end of the year.
The expansions will be implemented in all major areas of Catalent’s cold-chain storage and distribution, including two to eight degree Celsius and -80 degree Celsius capabilities, in some cases more than tripling existing capacity for storage and distribution.
“Cold-chain storage and distribution capabilities are in increasing demand throughout the industry and our customers are looking to Catalent to provide these services as a trusted partner who can ensure the integrity of their end to end cold-chain needs,” said Frank Lis, vice president and general manager of Clinical Supply Services. “The steadily increasing number of biological products in development, particularly in prefilled syringes, is fueling the need for refrigerated storage and distribution.”
