New Commercial Production Suites and Equipment

Metrics Contract Services (Metrics), a full-service global contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO), has expanded its novel oral solid dose commercial facility in Greenville, North Carolina, adding 3,760 square feet of production space and new equipment.

The expansion completes a further $10 million investment following the completion of an $80 million project in 2018, and consists of three new manufacturing suites including a:

  • Combination dispensing/flex room
  • Flex room
  • Dedicated suite to house a newly commissioned Fette FE55 contained tablet press with bilayer capability.

All three suites feature: separate personnel and equipment airlocks for compliant one-way flow to prevent contamination; stainless steel doors and finishes; robust epoxy paint and floor finishes; low wall HEPA filter exhausts with bag in – bag out design; and fogging showers. The additions accommodate the company’s growing portfolio of commercial services following sustained increase in demand from clients for high potent handling capabilities.
