The new 500-meter-square warehouse will hold incoming materials, including already micronized highly potent substances and cytotoxic products.

Micro-Macinazione, a provider of micronization services and equipment based in Switzerland, announced that it has established a new warehouse in a move to expand its storage capacity so that it can meet increasing customer demand. Swissmedic, the Swiss agency for therapeutic products and quality standards for GMP, inspected and certified the company’s new warehouse in Molinazzo di Monteggio on May 10.

The 500-meter-square storage facility will house incoming materials, including already micronized highly potent substances and cytotoxic products, which have special safety requirements. The warehouse also has extra space on two floors for 630 Euro-pallets.

Micro-Macinazione noted that sales were up 23.4% in the first quarter of 2016 compared to the same period in 2015. During the past two years, the company invested more than CHF 4 million to establish a new R&D department, build a new control banding system, and construct new production units for the micronization of highly potent substances and cytotoxic products. The company also has a new jet mill for processing large volumes of highly active ingredients.
