LSNE Announces Expansion of Its Current Capabilities and QC Laboratory Space
New Hampshire-based Contract Development and Manufacturing Organization (CDMO) will build new state-of-the-art laboratory to support its growing pharmaceutical and medical device client base.
April 10, 2018, Bedford, NH – Lyophilization Services of New England (LSNE), a premium CDMO, today announced a strategic plan to expand its Quality Control (QC) laboratory in Bedford, NH, and provide new employment opportunities for its analytical and operations workforce. This expansion is part of LSNE’s strategic growth plan to enhance its operations and capacity, to better serve its customers.
LSNE’s expansion plan includes 38,000 square feet of new QC laboratory space and centralized warehouse. Additionally, in conjunction with this expansion, LSNE will add approximately 20 new full-time positions. LSNE’s current QC lab will remain fully operational to avoid any interruption to ongoing customer services.
“In response to the strong momentum our business has demonstrated over the past several years, we are pleased to announce this new expansion plan,” says Thomas McGrath, Vice President of Quality and Regulatory at LSNE. “With the opening of the new, state-of-the-art laboratory, we will be well positioned to increase our analytical and microbiology capabilities to continue to support our clients and their clinical and commercial products. We have received increased customer demand over the last few years, and with the support of the Permira Funds, we are now able to increase our position as a full-service provider for parenteral products.”
The laboratory building, located on LSNE’s campus, will also house LSNE’S newly renovated centralized warehouse to support the company’s continued growth, including the offering of longer term product storage for our clients. The laboratory and warehouse are scheduled to be validated and operational during Q2 2018. Additional information will be available on LSNE’s website to follow the progress of the expansion.
