Managing director of Wasdell, Mr. Daniel Tedham, said in a statement. “We’ve witnessed a significant increase in demand for analytical support from our existing clients and the investment in our microbiological competence has been steered by our well-organized move into the manufacture of sterile products later this year”.

The Newcastle expansion follows its recent announcement of the company to build a new €30 million pharmaceutical facility in Dundalk, Ireland, which will offer a variety of current and novel packaging technologies and QC import testing along with storage and distribution.
