US-based Avantor, Inc. has started construction on a distribution centre which will help expedite access to essential production materials for biopharmaceutical manufacturers in Ireland.
Expected to open later this year, the facility will significantly increase distribution capacity to meet the growing demand for production materials by Ireland's biopharma industry.
"Our new Dublin distribution centre places essential content closer to our customers," said Sheri Lewis, Executive Vice President, Global Supply Chain Operations. "The facility is the latest in a series of capital investments we have made to increase capacity and capabilities. By supporting our customers in virtually every stage of research, scale-up and manufacturing we continue to grow as a trusted biopharma partner to keep breakthrough science moving forward."
The more than 68,800 square foot distribution facility will be Avantor's second in Dublin, adding capacity while streamlining processes. The center will feature capabilities such as warehousing of cGMP certified products, batch-to-batch traceability, and customized palletization. On-site clean rooms will also enable customers to conduct raw material sampling to expedite quality inspection and material receipt.
