The new API facility is being conceptualised as a versatile, multi-product space designed to accommodate both existing and prospective processes. The primary focus of this investment is directed towards augmenting API capacity. 

This construction aims to optimise the delivery of pharmaceuticals by emphasising efficiency and environmental sustainability.

Construction will commence gradually starting from the end of 2025, with completion anticipated by 2029.
