A new Distribution and Operations Center will be built next to the existing headquarters in Runcorn to provide warehouse capacity required for further growth in the UK hospital and homecare businesses. Furthermore, a new aseptic compound center will be added to the site and is expected to be completed in 2020. This will allow for an increased manufacturing capacity of compounded home parenteral nutrition products.
