Aenova invests around US$10.5 million (10 million Euros) in additional production capacity for semi-solids and non-sterile liquids at their Carugate site, Italy.
The new plant will be installed with more modern and efficient equipment.
With this investment, the new plant will enable the implementation of a new filling line for non-sterile liquids, a more efficient turbo-emulsifier, and a larger warehouse.
New Filling Line for Non-Sterile Liquids: This new filling line will increase capacity to over 10 million units per year. It is versatile, capable of filling bottles with various dosages (ranging from 10 ml to 350 ml) and different closure types (screw or crimp of metal and plastic cap, spray, dropper).
Turbo-Emulsifier: The installation of a more efficient turbo-emulsifier will enable the manufacturing of batch sizes ranging from 300 litres to 5,000 litres. This will also allow the production of different products, including flammable liquids, as the area is ATEX rated.
Larger Warehouse: A newly constructed warehouse next to the plant will provide nearly 3,000 additional pallet spaces, ensuring sufficient in-house GMP storage to meet the growing demand.
The new plant is expected to be fully equipped with modern and efficient equipment by the end of 2023.
