PTI moved to a new facility in Belgium that will house its headquarters and a R&D center for tablet dedusting, capsule polishing, and testing technology.
Pharma Technology Inc. (PTI), which produces tablet dedusters and capsule polishers combined with metal detectors and loading systems for pharmaceutical solid dose production, is moving its headquarters to a greenfield site half a mile from its current home in Nivelles, Belgium, the company announced in a Nov. 28, 2017 press release. At 60,000 ft2, the new facility is twice the size of the former facility.
The new facility will have a large R&D center for developing tablet dedusting, capsule polishing, and oral solid-dosage drug testing technology. The new facility also doubles manufacturing capacity and increases stocking space. A fully equipped demonstration lab will accommodate customer tests, factory acceptance testing, and special projects with containment (occupational exposure band 3) capacity. Leading up to the move, PTI has hired more than a dozen workers to bring its personnel count to approximately 75. A formal inauguration for the new plant is planned for March 2018.
