Lonza buys U.S. clinical manufacturing site from Shire
ZURICH (Reuters) – Lonza Group is acquiring a clinical-stage mammalian manufacturing site in the United States from Shire PLC, the Swiss pharmaceutical ingredients group said on Tuesday without giving the purchase price.
The site in California has a successful regulatory track record and includes single-use bioreactors and associated downstream capabilities, Lonza said. The site employs more than 100 staff who will have the chance to keep working for Lonza, it added.
