Governor Rendell Lauds Arrival of Medical Device Firm's Global Headquarters in York County
Date:4/2/2009

HARRISBURG, Pa., April 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- With a boost from state investments, a safety medical device company has relocated its world headquarters to York County in an $8.7 million expansion project that will create 33 high-wage jobs, Governor Rendell announced today.

Unilife Medical Solutions will occupy a manufacturing facility in Lewisberry that has been used by one of its subsidiaries, Integrated BioSciences. Unilife will manufacture innovative healthcare safety products, like its pre-filled syringe, which can help protect people from needlestick injuries and other unsafe injection practices. The expansion project will create at least 33 jobs and retain at least 87 positions, although the company expects to exceed those figures.

"The arrival of the global headquarters for a rapidly expanding medical device company would be incredible news under any circumstance, but it's especially noteworthy in these tough economic times," said Governor Rendell. "Unilife's arrival underscores the importance of working hard, every day, to bring companies to Pennsylvania. We must invest in projects that create employment opportunities in high-growth industries and leverage private-sector investment in the state."

Unilife Medical Solutions designs, develops, manufactures and supplies innovative safety medical devices for the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries. Core areas of business activity are the pharmaceutical market for prefilled syringes, the healthcare market for sharps safety devices, and medical device contract manufacturing.

The company recently entered into an exclusive five-year agreement with Sanofi-Aventis to industrialize the Unilife pre-filled syringe. Production of the syringe began at the Lewisberry facility last year, and the industrialization program for its high-volume production is now underway. Unilife will also manufacture the Unitract 1mL range of syringes at its
