Fresenius Kabi UK is expanding its existing operations in Runcorn, Cheshire, to further increase the supply of medicines for the therapy and care of critically and chronically ill patients. The investment of around € 9.5 million will also bring new high-skilled jobs to the area in the coming years.
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.
Niamh Furey, Managing Director of Fresenius Kabi Ltd. said: “This is a proud moment for Fresenius Kabi. As a business we continually strive to play a significant role in improving the lives of chronically and critically ill patients in the UK. As work commences to make our business better and stronger for the future, we will be able to benefit more patients than ever before and support healthcare professionals in the National Health Service to provide the best solutions for their patients. This expansion is also great news for employees both present and future as we strengthen our presence as a prominent employer in the borough of Halton.”
