API / Intermediates Manufacturing Facility Building

This is the manufacturing building of API for low molecular weight general pharmaceuticals. This production facility is capable of manufacturing investigational new drug to commercial production. This production facility is an ideal solution for clients contemplating comprehensive contract manufacturing from late development stage to commercial stage manufacturing.
The facility was built with Environmental/Health/Safety (EHS) in mind and by placing emphasis on the safety of workers, including segregation of dangerous materialusage areas and confinement measures against chemicals, the facility has been established to meets global standards. The facility has cleared many overseas agencies' audits.
