Waltham, MA, US - May 24, 2023 – Northway Biotech, a biopharmaceutical contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO), established in 2004, with an EMA and FDA-compliant, state-of-the-art cGMP manufacturing site in Vilnius, Lithuania, announced the completion of its expansion project for cGMP manufacturing facilities in Waltham, Massachusetts. This significant accomplishment further solidifies Northway Biotech's standing as an influential player in the global biopharmaceutical landscape.
This recent growth is an extension of the successful launch of Northway Biotech's process and analytical development laboratories in Waltham (Greater Boston area) in 2020. The expanded facility now includes state-of-the-art cGMP suites, marking a significant milestone in the company's journey. The newly established cutting-edge biomanufacturing suites hosts a microbial fermentation train with up to 450 liters of volume capacity, and a mammalian production train with the ability to handle volumes of up to 2,000 liters. Northway Biotech has further established a specialized, fully automated fill and finish line to accommodate its clients' varied needs, supporting high-throughput filling into vials, syringes, and cartridges.
Prof. Vladas Algirdas Bumelis, CEO of Northway Biotech, shared his insights regarding this accomplishment, stating, "The addition of GMP suites in our US site represents a transformative step for our organization, enabling us to provide comprehensive end-to-end solutions from our second site now. We are poised to transition current process development projects into the cGMP manufacturing phase in a timely manner, in line with our clients' committed schedules. Additionally, our longstanding US partners who have engaged with our Lithuanian site can now also take advantage of the geographical convenience of our modern facilities located in the Greater Boston Area. With our fully functional and technologically advanced manufacturing site at our disposal, Northway Biotech is perfectly positioned to take on manufacturing projects aimed at both clinical and commercial supply”.
To commemorate this significant expansion and express gratitude to its valued partners and industry leaders, Northway Biotech will be hosting a grand opening event for its cGMP suites on June 8th. This event promises to be an occasion of celebration and networking, providing an opportunity for attendees to witness firsthand the state-of-the-art facilities and engage in meaningful discussions within the biotech community.
