Saint-Gobain has completed construction of its new Florida facility. The Largo facility is a significant milestone in the component manufacturer's €70 million ($77.5m) global expansion programme spanning seven manufacturing sites to be operational by the end of 2020.
The 80,000 sqft facility will become an additional manufacturing site of Saint-Gobain's C-Flex tubing, moulded connections and assemblies used in fluid management for biopharmaceutical manufacturing. Saint-Gobain will also continue to produce C-Flex tubing and related product lines at its existing facilities in Clearwater, FL; Charny, France; and Bangalore, India.
Saint-Gobain is investing over $77.5m over a 3-year period to increase manufacturing capacity by expanding or constructing new manufacturing facilities.
The expansions are to increase localised supply. The locations include:
"We recognise the responsibility we have to our customers and ultimately, their patients, to increase capacity and localise production, ensuring a reliable, global supply of our products to the Pharmaceutical industry," said Benjamin Le Quéré, General Manager of Saint-Gobain Bioprocess Solutions.
