Contract manufacturing and formulation development company Formulated Solutions, Largo, FL, announced the recent completion of its largest infrastructure expansion project to date, with significant increases in footprint, capacity, and capability in all areas of new product development and manufacturing of Branded Rx, Over-the-Counter (OTC), New Drug Application (NDA) and Medical Device products.
The newly completed footprint expands Formulated Solution’s overall capacity through increases in manufacturing footprint, warehousing, process flow, blending and employee space.
Highlights of investments include the addition of 30,000 square feet of new employee and onsite warehousing space, substantial increases in blending capacity supported by custom-built blending vessels, installation of high viscosity and high precision aerosol filling upgrades, qualification of a custom fully automated high-speed premium airless filling and assembly production line, and installation of expanded capacity in pre-weighing of raw materials and incoming raw material inspection. The company also designed and installed a fully dedicated “plant within a plant” for new nasal spray products including pre-weigh, blending, and high-speed filling, with production rates reaching 200 units per minute.
“Formulated Solutions has been growing at high double digits for more than two decades and being able to anticipate large scale of growth, has long been part of both our DNA and business model”, said Scott Carpenter, VP of Marketing & Partner Innovation.
“I could not be prouder of our ability to continuously grow and serve the ever-expanding field of opportunities we’ve been able to cultivate with our marketing partners,” Carpenter concluded.
