WuXi STA Finalizes Acquisition of BMS’ Swiss Manufacturing Facility

WuXi STA has finalized its acquisition of Bristol Myers Squibb’s drug product manufacturing facility based in Couvet, Switzerland.

According to a Aug. 3, 2021 press release, WuXi STA—a subsidiary of WuXi AppTec—has finalized its acquisition of Bristol Myers Squibb’s (BMS’) drug product manufacturing facility based in Couvet, Switzerland.

Plans for the acquisition were announced earlier in 2021, and with the successful completion, the newly acquired site is the first in Europe for WuXi STA. The Swiss facility expands WuXi STA’s capacity on a global scale and will afford the company greater access to the European market.
