PCI Pharma Services launches containment packaging facility in Ireland

PKBR Staff Writer Published 26 April 2018

Pharmaceutical outsourcing services provider PCI Pharma Services (PCI) has launched a new contained packaging facility at a site near Dublin, Ireland.

The investment in the new facility, which is intended for the primary and secondary packaging of highly potent products at the company's newly acquired site near Dublin, is a part of the firm’s effort to provide highest standards of excellence in outsourced pharmaceutical packaging services to its existing and future customers.

PCI currently manufactures highly potent molecules at its contained manufacturing facility located at its Tredegar site in Wales, UK. 

PCI president and CEO Bill Mitchell said: “The recent acquisition of Millmount Healthcare and further investment in this newest specialized facility adds considerable capacity and capability to our global supply network, enabling us to meet our customers’ ever changing and evolving needs in many different geographies. 

“Moreover, as our fourth acquisition outside the US in the past four years, this expansion further demonstrates our ability to provide our clients with a comprehensive solution to any uncertainty brought upon by ongoing negotiations between the UK and EU as a result of the evolving Brexit situation.

“We have already received a tremendous response to the acquisition, and investments such as this high containment packaging facility are part of our strategic plan to continue business growth and service development for our customers.”

The firm said that the new contained packaging facility ensures its commitment to delivering the highest standards of safety and regulatory adherence for specialized medicines.

The facility is also a part of PCI’s strategic initiative to develop its High Containment Operations (HCO) services globally, PCI noted.

PCI has employed approximately 30 people at the Dublin area facilities since the acquisition of Millmount Healthcare. The firm expects to add more than 100 positions over the next five years as the sites continue to expand.
