Jubilant HollisterStier has completed the first phase of expansion at its Montreal facility, adding to its sterile manufacturing capacity with a new ampoule filling line utilizing a rigid barrier system. The new area will expand ampoule manufacturing capacity by almost 200%. Additionally, the sterile areas have been optimized through successful implementation of Lean and Six Sigma initiatives.
The new area is scheduled to be ready for product on September 9, 2013. A significant portion of the expanded capacity has been allocated to new customer products that will be manufactured at the site.
“We are excited to complete this phase of our optimization strategy in sterile manufacturing. Our site in Montreal will be well positioned to continue offering multiple dosage platforms for our global customers. We have been fortunate to secure several new contracts that will utilize our expanded capacity starting this year,” said Marcelo Morales, Jubilant HollisterStier’s chief executive officer.
