Hovione Opens its New API Plant in Cork
Date:4/22/2009

CORK, Ireland, April 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Hovione held today the opening ceremony of its new active pharmaceutical ingredient manufacturing site in Cork. Hovione contracted with Pfizer last December to take over the site that had been manufacturing Lipitor(R) since 1997. The handover of the plant took place on April 6th and the transaction closed on the 8th; going forward Hovione will continue to perform a small amount of manufacture for Pfizer but will mostly make use of the available capacity to address its own production needs.

Hovione is a specialist developer and manufacturer and the Cork site will be used to produce active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) for a large range of pharmaceutical companies both large and small worldwide. Many customers find it more cost effective and less risky to manufacture APIs externally by a specialist, and see a contractor as a more flexible option that transforms fixed into variable costs, reduces risk, provides added value and assured results. By being the manufacturing partner to a large number of Innovators, Hovione is able to make sure its capacity is more readily occupied than if it was limited to producing in-house products, and is also thereby able to reduce production costs and the investment risk of equipping itself with the latest technologies.

Hovione's research centres -in New Jersey, USA and Lisbon, Portugal- assure the development and manufacture of clinical trial materials for a growing number of compounds, exceeding 40 last year alone. As these products progressed through clinical development, and some got ready for filing, Hovione felt it needed additional capacity to ensure it could continue to guaranty absolute assurance of supply to its customers. The Cork site addresses perfectly this need as it provides state-of-the-art manufacturing capacity and experienced staff precisely at the right moment.
