Recipharm and Sanofi have completed the acquisition of Sanofi's inhalation contract manufacturing business including a manufacturing facility located in Holmes Chapel, UK.
The facility, which includes development and manufacturing capabilities for novel respiratory products, complements the inhalation development expertise offered by the Recipharm team in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina.
Announced in June 2018, the acquisition forms part of Recipharm's M&A growth strategy, which is focused on expanding its full service offering to include specialist, in-demand capabilities.
Commenting on the announcement, Thomas Eldered, CEO of Recipharm said Treatments for asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are in high demand and are therefore key growth areas for our business.
The Holmes Chapel manufacturing facility is one of the leading sites of its type in Europe and is home to a team of more than 450 specialist employees.
The prime technologies manufactured at the facility include metered dose inhalers and nasal sprays. It also houses several development suites specifically for dry powder and other inhalation technologies.
