Novo Nordisk Invests US$2.3 billion (DKK 15.9 billion) to Expand Manufacturing Facilities

The focus on creating a future-proof and cost-effective facility reflects the commitment in delivering the highest quality to patients in an efficient and environmentally sustainable manner.

With construction already underway, the facility is expected to commence API production by early 2029.
