Pharma Tech Industries (PTI) is expanding its production facility in Union, MO, adding approximately 60,000 sq.-ft. of manufacturing space, bringing its total area to 160,000 sq.-ft. The new manufacturing space will be used primarily for the production of ingestible powders and will include a dedicated ISO 8 clean room. The project is scheduled to be completed in March 2014.
PTI also has a 270,000-sq.-ft. facility in Royston, GA and recently completed an analytical lab to broaden its on-site testing capabilities for both prescription and OTC drugs. The new equipment adds several analytical services including High Pressure Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) for Assay/Impurity profiles of liquids and powders; Quantitative/Qualitative Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) Spectroscopy; Particle Size Analysis of powders by Laser Diffraction; and Gas Chromatography (GC) analysis.
“Our latest expansion and upgrade projects reflect not only an increase in the volume of overall business, but in the variety of manufacturing services that Pharma Tech Industries can offer to customers,” said Tee Noland, chairman of PTI. “These projects are in line with our goal of responsible, gradual growth that allows PTI to reach into new areas while continuing to refine and hone existing capabilities.”
