Pharmco, an international producer of specialty alcohols and high purity solvents, has announced an expansion to its packaging facility in Brookfield, Connecticut, through the creation of a bioprocessing wing. The new capabilities include aseptic filling and temperature-controlled storage for stability programmes available from three to five years.

The expansion builds on the facility's cleanroom which has been in operation since 2009.

Initial portfolio options will focus on assisting customers in outsourcing their resin storage, cleaning, and regeneration solutions, as well as supporting key life science partners.

Package sizes are available in single-use and rigid containers ranging from 1L bottles to 1000L bags. Stability programmes are available upon request.

Pharmco is a brand of Canada-based Greenfield Global. This announcement is the latest in a series of investments made by Greenfield Global to grow its expertise in manufacturing, storing, and shipping high-value specialty chemicals and ingredients around the world.

In April, the company announced plans to establish a new European manufacturing headquarters in Portlaoise, Ireland.

"We are proud of the role we are playing in helping advancements in bioprocessing, gene therapy, and medical device industry by supplying high-quality, reliable pharmaceutical products, "said Steve DiBenedetto, SVP of Sales and Operations. "Our customers do incredible things, and we will continue to focus our growth in areas that will deliver the maximum benefit to their work and specific needs."
