West Pharmaceutical Services, a provider of solutions for injectable-drug administration, started up its compression-molding plant in the Shanghai Zhangjiang High-Tech Industrial Development Zone Qingpu Park in China. The new plant is adjacent to West’s injection-molding facility that was dedicated in September 2009.
The 11,900-m2 compression-molding plant manufactures components used for packaging injectable drugs, supplying customers primarily in China and the Asia-Pacific region. Construction began in June 2011.
In addition to the plants in Qingpu, West’s presence in the Asia-Pacific region includes a factory in Singapore and sales offices in Australia, China, India and Singapore. The company’s first manufacturing facility in India is under construction.
