Vetter announces completion of multi-functional building for development service and IT functions.

Vetter announced on Jan. 28, 2016 that the company’s Schuetzenstrasse multi-functional building in Ravensburg, Germany, has been completed on schedule and departments critical to its operation have started to move in. The €29 million investment is part of a €300 million total investment strategy announced by the company in September 2015 for further development to its manufacturing sites.

The continued demand by large and small customers for enhanced drug development services, as well as the need for ever-more future-oriented sophisticated IT systems to protect their data, created the need for the new facility, the company reported in a press statement.

The 91,500-sq ft, six-story building contains non-cGMP laboratories for development support, laboratory space for microbiological analysis, office workplaces for Vetter Development Service and IT, and a data processing center with enhanced security systems, including a safety cell that protects technology and data from external physical hazards in the event of an emergency.
