“Opening this facility demonstrates Colorcon’s continued commitment to supporting the growing pharmaceutical and nutritional markets in Australia, reducing our customer’s time to market during product development. The investment reflects Colorcon’s dedication to providing best-in-class products and services,” commented David Wei, general manager, Colorcon South East Asia.
Tim Horwood, business development manager in Australia, explained, “The new technical service center will provide both large and small customers the opportunity to work directly with Colorcon and for the first time in Australia to conduct laboratory-scale compression and coating trials, using automated coating equipment, saving valuable development time and cost.”
“The facility will also provide the opportunity to extend the educational events offered through the Colorcon Academy to our customers, with resources to conduct training programs to expand their knowledge in formulation and coating; benefiting both companies and individuals,” added Glenn Russell, technical director. “Colorcon’s continuous investment in customer support is unmatched in the industry; this additional facility brings the total number of Technical Service Laboratories around the world to twenty-two and is the seventh within Southeast Asia.”
