Sartorius opens German production facility for bioreactors

Friday, September 14, 2012 12:19 PM

Sartorius, the Germany-based international laboratory and process technology provider, has officially opened its new plant in Guxhagen, Germany, for the manufacture of bioreactors.

After approximately one year of construction and $23.5 million, the new building will now manufacture bioreactors and further production equipment for customers in the biopharmaceutical industry. Covering a total area of nearly 10,000 square feet, the new building complex provides space for a high-tech manufacturing hall and offices for 240 employees. The building owner is Robos GmbH, from which Sartorius has rented the premises in a long-term lease.

"The new plant enables us to substantially enhance our manufacturing processes and creates additional capacity for us in view of the rising demand for biopharmaceutical production equipment,” said Joachim Kreuzburg, CEO and executive board chairman, Sartorius. “As a result, we are optimally prepared for further expansion, especially for single-use bioreactors.”

Sartorius has moved all operations from its former bioreactor production facility in Melsungen, Germany, where it had reached maximum capacity limits.
