Pharma Technology Inc. (PTI) – the global leader in tablet dedusters and capsule polishers combined with metal detectors and loading systems for pharmaceutical solid dose production – is moving its headquarters to a green field site half a mile from its current home in Nivelles, Belgium. At 60,000 square feet, the new state-of-the-art site is twice the size of Pharma Technology’s former facility and, among other attributes, will feature a large R&D center to build upon the company’s reputation for innovation in tablet dedusting, capsule polishing and OSD testing technology.
The new headquarters also doubles Pharma Technology’s manufacturing capacity, and significantly increases its stocking space. Modernized technology will boost production of high-end equipment with continuous quality control through all manufacturing and assembly stages, resulting in an e-FAT individual document per machine. A spacious, fully equipped demonstration lab accommodates customer tests, FATs and special projects with OEB 3 containment capacity.
Leading up to the move, Pharma Technology also has up-staffed, hiring over a dozen workers to bring its personnel count to approximately 75. A formal inauguration for the new plant is planned for March 2018.
“Upgrading and upsizing our facility is a result of the tremendous growth we’ve experienced in the past few years, and the continued growth we anticipate moving forward,” said Nic Michel, General Manager for Pharma Technology Inc. “As our customer portfolio continues to expand, we’re excited about having additional space to increase our capacity while developing groundbreaking technologies for the near future.”
