Fareva Group completed a major investment in high potent drug product manufacturing. The investment is strengthening the Group’s capabilities in high potent drug products to answer increasing market demand. Our experience over the last several years indicates oncology drugs represent more than 50% of the new chemical entities (NCE’s).

This program started in 2016 in the site of Fareva La Vallée, France. Increasing capacity for highly potent APIs was added, with a pilot plant, a production building and additional R&D laboratories.

In 2018-2019, Fareva’s Excella site in Feucht, Germany expanded its analytical capabilities and added roller compaction for highly potent drug product.

In April 2021, the Group completed the acquisition of a Novartis’ site in Austria. Unterach specializes in injectable, high potent drug products, with packaging available in vials and pre-filled syringes.

Fareva Excella continues its expansion on high potent tablets and capsules operations with a major investment of 25 m€, which will be available for production in 2023. The production facilities will be expanded this year with a new 2,850m2 building, reaching 500 million units per year capacity for tablets or capsules, up to OEB6 containment level. An additional suite for future demand is also a part of the program.
