Olon will build and operate the new area with advanced technologies that, relying on the deep expertise in biomanufacturing, will produce proteins following innovative and highly sustainable processes. Microbial fermentation is one of the most eco-friendly and sustainable technology.
The expansion will allow Olon to increase its capacity to accommodate new and existing clients' needs. It also fits in the strategy of expanding the CDMO services in different market segments.
"We are significatively investing in our fermentation capacity following market trends that show an increased demand for microbial bio-manufactured compounds. Offering our expertise in CDMO services and biotechnological platforms as well, we are able to support innovative biotech companies to accelerate the development of new products, combining it with a more sustainable manufacturing approach," explains Paolo Tubertini, CEO at Olon Group. "We are fully committed to understand and meet our customers' needs, as we continuously seek to provide new capacity and services."
Thanks to this investment, the site of Settimo Torinese will offer the production capacity for the significant volumes needed to sustain the launch of new products.
