Recipharm, a Jordbro, Sweden-based CDMO, has reported that a $22-million blow-fill-seal filling and packaging line is now operational at its facility in Kaysersberg, France.

The EUR 18 million ($22 million) investment added a new blow-fill-seal high-speed filling and packaging line to the site, taking the total number of lines to eight and increasing the facility’s manufacturing capacity by 200 million unidoses/year.

In addition, the investment adds 2,400 square meters to the facility, creating space for a further three machines, which is expected to allow the site to manufacture over 1.2 billion unidoses/year.

The Kaysersberg site is a facility specializing in blow–fill–seal technology for sterile liquids. The site manufactures single dose units and has an aseptic process for sterile liquid packaging applications.
