February 2, 2016

Invests $4.6mn to further expand clinical trials hub in Singapore

Catalent Pharma Solutions said it is investing $4.6 million to further expand its Singapore clinical supply facility by building new flexible GMP space for secondary packaging, doubling its ambient storage space and quadrupling cold storage capacity. The continued expansion of the site will support global and regional customers’ growth in clinical trials activity in the Asia–Pacific region.

Established in 1998, Catalent’s Singapore site now provides full clinical supply services including project and supply chain management, comparator sourcing, clinical label printing, secondary packaging, clinical storage, import/export management, Importer of Record (IoR) service, and full returns and destruction management services. It has served as a key regional hub for studies in Australia, Singapore, Korea, Hong Kong and other countries in Southeast Asia.

“Our Singapore facility is fully approved by the Health Science Authority for GMP across all its activities,” said Wetteny Joseph, president, clinical supply services, Catalent. “Customer demand at the site has increased by 30% over last year, and this expansion, coupled with our recently announced opening of a facility in Japan, will allow Catalent to better support multinational customers’ growing trial’s needs, while providing more flexible solutions for local customers in the region.”
