Date:1/24/2011

LEXINGTON, Mass., Jan. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Shire plc (LSE: SHP, Nasdaq: SHPGY), the global specialty biopharmaceutical company, today announced that the Project Atlas manufacturing facility in Lexington, Massachusetts has been recognized with an honorable mention in the ISPE (International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering) Facility of the Year Awards program.

Project Atlas was selected from a group of 26 state-of-the-art projects constructed in 11 different countries.

"We are honored to be recognized by ISPE for our work on the Atlas Project," said Bill Ciambrone, Head of Technical Operations at Shire HGT.

As the ISPE judges noted, Project Atlas is the embodiment of Shire's vision – which is to be as brave as the people we help."

The Atlas facility supports the manufacture of REPLAGAL® (agalsidase alfa), VPRIV® (velaglucerase alfa), and Shire's robust pipeline of future development programs.  Along with Atlas, Shire owns four buildings in Lexington that serve as the global ce
