Volume 10, Issue 8

West has dedicated its first manufacturing plant in India, located in the Sri City Special Economic Zone (SEZ), where the company will expand its growing primary packaging for injectable medicines business.

"This new facility in Sri City will allow West to continue to satisfy the needs of our customers, who are serving a growing number of patients in India and the Asia Pacific region,” said Donald E. Morel, Jr., West’s chairman and CEO, in a press release.

The 15,300-m2 (approximately 164,700-ft2) facility will produce seals used in primary packaging of injectable medicines manufactured by West’s pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical customers in India and the wider Asia Pacific region. There are future plans to expand production at the site to include West’s elastomer component business. West’s manufacturing presence in the Asia Pacific market also includes a plant in Singapore and two plants in Qingpu, China.
