Metrics Contract Services: Your "Concept to Commercialization" Partner
The parent company of Metrics Contract Services, Mayne Pharma, is
investing $80 million to significantly expand facilities and equipment at its
site in Greenville, N.C.
The strategic capital investment will fund a new 126,000-square-foot,
oral-dose commercial manufacturing facility — quadrupling the company’s U.S.
manufacturing capacity, and re-purposing space to create 10+ new analytical
laboratories and formulation development suites.
This means Metrics Contract Services can offer a more complete “concept
to commercialization” solution in one contiguous location for clients —
scale and increased capabilities for seamless scale-up, eliminating the need
for site transfers.
As part of the expansion, Metrics will
introduce commercial-scale manufacturing capability including solvent-based,
fluid-bed processing and film coating. With the new facility, Mayne Pharma will
triple its global fluid-bed processing capacity, strengthening considerably its
global leadership position in oral drug delivery.
Other benefits of Metrics’ expanded and
improved facilities include:
solutions to support the handling of highly potent and toxic compounds and
mitigate cross-contamination risks, and
- Deliberate design to meet the various
regulatory requirements of international agencies.
new facility will be fully validated and open to client business by January
Once commercial production
activities move to the new facility, Metrics will retrofit its existing
facility — significantly increasing development and clinical trial material
capacity by adding 10+ analytical laboratories and formulation development
While we are making
enormous changes to our facilities, some things at Metrics will never change —
such as conducting
sound and thoughtful science that helps our pharmaceutical industry clients
succeed and grow. Metrics remains committed to getting your compound through
clinical trials as quickly, safely and cost effectively as possible.
