Mylan Announces Completion of Transdermal Patch Facility Expansion Project in St. Albans, Vt.

ST. ALBANS, Vt., Sept. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Mylan Inc. (Nasdaq: MYL) today announced the completion of an 85,000 square foot, three-story expansion project at its transdermal patch facility, operated by Mylan Technologies Inc. (MTI), in St. Albans, Vt. Through Mylan's investment, including funding for expanded research and development (R&D) capabilities and additional manufacturing and laboratory space, the company is in the process of adding more than 160 new positions to its St. Albans-based workforce. MTI is a proven leader in transdermal drug delivery systems – patches that deliver medication through the skin – and related technologies.

In conjunction with the expansion project, Mylan today hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony to commemorate the occasion. Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin as well as a number of local officials, community members and employees, attended the event.

Mylan CEO Heather Bresch said: "Mylan's investment in the ongoing growth of our transdermal franchise demonstrates our continued commitment to and confidence in our ability to provide complex generic and interchangeable products and innovative delivery alternatives, such as transdermals. Through this expansion, MTI will continue to play a critical role in the expansion and diversification of Mylan's global product portfolio, especially when it comes to difficult-to-develop and –manufacture products. I would like to thank Governor Shumlin as well as the city of St. Albans for their ongoing support of this project. Importantly, I would also like to recognize Mylan's more than 590 employees in Vermont for their hard work and dedication to our continued success."

The 14-month expansion project has increased MTI's total operating space to more than 391,000 square feet. Since becoming a part of the Mylan manufacturing network more than 20 years ago, MTI has developed a number of branded and generic transdermal products available to patients in markets around the world, including the U.S., Canada, Europe, Japan, New Zealand and Australia.
