Xcelience has opened its 3,000ft2 facility in Birmingham, UK. The new plant will serve as a gateway for the FL-based company's clinical packaging and distribution services in the UK, Europe and abroad. The MHRA inspected the new facility on June 4th.
The facility offers storage, secondary packaging, labeling and clinical trial distribution operations, as well as qualified person (QP) release and lab services, and a qualified 2-8°C walk in cold storage chamber.
"The market for pharmaceutical products is global, and our clients have been asking us to go global with them. This facility is our first step toward meeting that need," said Derek Hennecke, president and chief operating officer. "Now our clients have a central hub which can be used to package and distribute throughout the UK and European markets."
The company also plans to develop and license several international hubs and is working towards setting up partner depot facilities in four locations in Latin America, one in the Middle East and one in Russia.
