trial phases. Our state-of-the-art, flexible manufacturing facility and

Metrics Contract Services is investing $3.5 million in a
15,000-sq-ft stability storage expansion that will triple its current capacity.
The expanded stability storage facility is being constructed with automated
emergency power generation to ensure integrity of stored samples, with system
redundancies maintaining environmental controls in all circumstances.
The parent company of Metrics Contract Services, Mayne Pharma, is
investing $80 million to significantly expand facilities and equipment at its
site in Greenville, NC. The strategic capital investment will fund a new
126,000-sq-ft, oral-dose commercial manufacturing facility, quadrupling the
company’s US manufacturing capacity, and the re-purposing of space to create
10+ new analytical laboratories and formulation development suites.
The new facility means Metrics Contract Services can offer a more
complete “concept to commercialization” solution in one contiguous location for
clients, providing larger scale and increased capabilities for seamless
scale-up, eliminating the need for site transfers.
