Sandoz expands production capacity at Kundl site
Sandoz (Novartis) has opened new facilities in Kundl, Austria. The facilities will significantly expand Sandoz' production of sterile penicillins and create 30 new jobs. The expansion has resulted in the addition of two new floors to the existing building and increased its powder facilities with a planned annual capacity of more than 150 million vials. The size of the two new floors is approximately 22,500 square metres. Sandoz commented that it had decided to expand its production of sterile penicillins because of strong worldwide demand for antibiotics.
