Designed to support the expanding needs of the European and Asia Pacific market, SAFC's Irvine facility expansion will result in redundant manufacturing capabilities in conjunction with SAFC's existing dry powder media facility in Lenexa, KS.

The addition of the dry powder milling and blending capability to the Irvine facility will complete the 5-year Capital Expansion Plan SAFC initiated as part of its long-term commitment to supporting customers in the growing industrial biopharmaceutical market.  SAFC will construct a purpose-built Animal Component Free (ACF) dry powder media manufacturing facility to complement the existing liquid cell culture media, buffers, and reagents capabilities in Irvine. Ground breaking for the new facility is expected to commence in March 2013 and should be manufacturing-ready in Q1 of 2014. Once complete, the facility will be one of the most modern and fit-for-purpose media facilities in the industry.
