Promega builds plant to produce regulated products

Including sample preparation systems and reagents

Promega has held the ground-breaking ceremony for its new manufacturing plant

Promega Corporation, based in Madison, Wisconsin, US, has held a ground-breaking ceremony for a new cGMP facility to support business growth and customers who need FDA-regulated molecular biology products. These include sample preparation systems and reagents, which are part of diagnostic and medical tests sold by human diagnostic test providers.

The 260,000ft2 (24,150m2) facility will require an additional 100 people in the next five years. Most of the building will be dedicated to fixed and flexible manufacturing areas. It will also house a customer experience centre for training, laboratory demonstrations and conferences.

‘This building is our next step in expanding our product supply capabilities worldwide,’ said ceo Bill Linton.

Plans include a number of sustainable practices, including geothermal heating and cooling, dark sky compliant lighting, prairie restoration, bio-retention ponds for storm water run off among other sustainable features and construction practices.

Promega Corporation provides solutions and technical support to the life sciences industry. Its 2,000 products enable scientists worldwide to advance their knowledge in genomics, proteomics, cellular analysis, molecular diagnostics and human identification.
