Actylis Opens A 30,000ft2 cGMP Facility to Bolster its Innovative API Manufacturing Capabilities

Actylis, a leading global manufacturer of critical raw materials and performance ingredients for the life sciences and specialty chemicals markets, today announces the opening of a new 30,000ft2 cGMP facility in Eugene, OR (USA).

Gilles Cottier, Chief Executive Officer of Actylis, said: “Today we are delighted to announce that this purpose-built 30,000ft2 facility has commenced operations, allowing us to develop and manufacture GMP APIs and Pharma intermediates from clinical trial to commercial volumes.”

Mr Cottier added: “we designed this facility specifically to enable us to develop and produce innovative APIs for our customers.  Our intimate knowledge of their needs, our consultative approach, and focus on innovation offer unparalleled choice and flexibility. We worked closely with architect firm BCA (Blaise Cacciola Architect) and Coffman Engineering to build a facility that has the most up-to-date technology and equipment available.”

Christine Bellmor, Site Director, elaborated on some of the specific capabilities of the site: “We are excited to have this state-of-the-art facility here in Eugene come on line after such an intensive design and development process.  We have 7 manufacturing suites and our clean rooms will be ISO Class 8 compliant by Q3.  We have a number of different reactors to allow flexibility for a variety of chemistries.   Commissioning and qualifications for clinical GMP were completed at the end of January this year and we already have our first projects completed and more are underway. The new facility is a 10 minute drive from our R&D facility which is critical for scaling and developing new processes for the plant.  We are very proud of the site and look forward to welcoming customers to the facility so that they can see for themselves the capabilities we offer.”
