New clean rooms totalling around 2,400 square meters
Sartorius is further growing its global production capacity with the expansion of its manufacturing site in Tunisia, Africa. Enabling the Germany-based company to increase the production of fluid management technologies, it invested more than 20 million euros for a new 10,000 square-meter building and corresponding operation equipment at its existing M'Hamdia location.
The extension includes clean rooms totalling around 2,400 square meters with adjacent warehouse and logistics facilities, among others. Sartorius currently has almost 800 employees in M'Hamdia and anticipates job growth at the site in the future.
The opening ceremony on Thursday, May 19, 2022, was attended by the Governor of Ben Arous, Ezzedine Chelbi, and the Deputy Head of Mission of the German Embassy in Tunisia, Georg Felsheim, as well as representatives of the Ministry of Industry.
The site in Tunisia has been in operation since 2001. In 2019, Sartorius established the Sartorius Academy Tunisia, a training centre to develop the skills of its employees, especially for new employees joining the plant.
