Almac's US Headquarters Will Address Capacity Demand for Clinical Supplies
Date:6/21/2010

Huge Increase in Storage Capacity for Ambient, Cold Storage and Controlled Drugs.

(PRWEB) June 21, 2010 -- Almac has addressed ongoing industry developments by greatly expanding their capacity in the New North American Headquarters. Increased storage space was sparked by current trends and forecasts in the pharmaceutical industry, specifically the growing demand for biologics. Biologics, which are protein based, require cold storage to prevent degradation where as “small-molecule” drugs (non-protein based) can be stored at room temperature. Almac has made accommodations for growth by building a 271,000 cubic ft. 2-8°C cold storage facility.

“Much of the demand coming from customers has been in this area,” said Mark Rohlfing, Director of Quality at Almac. “Our current cold storage capacity in Audubon was limited, hence the 400% increase in capacity. We have also built large cold stores at our other sites in recent years to support this change.” According to a recent pharmaceutical publication, biologic ingredients are set to grow 12 - 15 percent per year to reach $12 billion by 2011. Industry analysts report that 6 of the top 10 drugs and half of the top 100 drugs in 2014 will be biologics, an approximate 2 fold increase from 2008.

Currently, Almac’s Audubon facility provides space for 400 pallets in the 2-8°C range while the new facility allows for up to 1600 pallets. Storage for 15 - 25°C products also expanded from 4200 to 6300 pallet spaces. A 6,131 cubic ft. storage unit for products between -25 to -15°C is also available, as well as mobile freezer units for products between -80 to -60°C.

Improvements are also significant in vault storage for Schedule I and II controlled substances. The vault is maintained at 15-25°C and encompasses 80,000 cubic feet, with enough racking space for 310
