Unither Pharmaceuticals, a sterile unit-dose manufacturer, will acquire an UCB pharmaceutical plant in Rochester, NY. The plant employs 250 people and mainly manufacturers liquid pharmaceutical products.

Under the agreement, Unither will continue manufacturing UCB products, and all Rochester's employees will be offered the opportunity to work for Unither. While manufacturing UCB products, Unither intends to install BFS and stick-pack technologies in the Rochester plant to provide its clients or US prospects with locally made products.The transaction is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of this year, according to a Unither press release.
