Tech Group Europe, a Dublin-based subsidiary of West Pharmaceutical Services, is expanding its manufacturing and development center in Dublin by 12,000 sq. ft., after securing a contract with a global pharmaceutical partner.
Tech Group will manufacture and assemble a complex injectable device for the diabetes market and will begin full-scale production in 2015. The device will be shipped to the customer’s European filling site for final assembly.

This first phase in the expansion comes about as a result of an exciting win with a leading global pharmaceutical partner in the fast-growing diabetes market, and further strengthens West’s position as one of the world’s leading manufacturers of complex medical devices for the pharmaceutical market.”
