Located on the western tip of Singapore, Tuas Biomedical Park (TBP), a 890 acres stretch of ready-prepared and specifically-zoned land, presents a conducive environment for pharmaceutical and biologics manufacturing.
TBP is currently home to leading pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical technology companies such as Abbott, Alcon, CIBA Vision, Genentech, GlaxoSmithKline Biologicals, Lonza, Merck Sharp & Dohme, Novartis, Pfizer and Wyeth. These companies have collectively invested US$4 billion to set up manufacturing facilities in TBP. Equipped with established infrastructure such as roads, drainage systems, power, water supply, and telecommunication lines, TBP continues to attract leading biomedical sciences companies to set up manufacturing facilities here.
