Colorcon Launches New Technical Center in Australia

The new facility will give the company’s Australian customers access to tablet formulation and coating services in order to shorten supply chains and increase the region’s pharmaceutical sector capacity.

Colorcon, a film coating systems and excipients development company headquartered in Harleysville, PA, announced on August 5, 2020 that it has opened a new technical center in Melbourne, Australia.

The new facility will give the company’s Australian customers access to tablet formulation and coating services in order to shorten supply chains and increase the region’s pharmaceutical sector capacity, a company press release said.

“The new technical service center will provide both large and small customers the opportunity to work directly with Colorcon and for the first time in Australia to conduct laboratory-scale compression and coating trials, using automated coating equipment, saving valuable development time and cost,” said Tim Horwood, business development manager, Colorcon, in the press release.

“Opening this facility demonstrates Colorcon’s continued commitment to supporting the growing pharmaceutical and nutritional markets in Australia, reducing our customer’s time to market during product development,” added David Wei, general manager, Colorcon South East Asia, in the press release. “The investment reflects Colorcon’s dedication to providing best-in-class products and services.”
