Integrated company building for an optimized process flow

The integrated company building consists of three connected areas to optimally support process flows:

  • Administration: offices and laboratories
  • Production: engineering and production (batch preparation, material preparation, cleaning, sterilization, filling and freeze-drying)
  • Logistics: warehouse, visual inspection and packaging

The concrete building includes a ground floor, a mezzanine and two upper floors with approx. 6000 m² of usable floor space. The building, including roof structures, is 16 meters tall. The property measuring approximately 10,000 m2 allows for expansion in several phases of construction without interrupting existing production.
