Berkshire Sterile Manufacturing

In 2019 Sharp agreed a preferred partnership agreement with innovative sterile manufacturer Berkshire Sterile Manufacturing (BSM)

Since the original partnership announcement, Sharp has taken a 25% ownership position in Berkshire Sterile Manufacturing. This deepens the operational collaboration between the two companies to benefit those pharma companies looking for an integrated provider of sterile fill-finish, packaging, labeling and distribution services for small volume biotech formats.

Massachusetts-based BSM is a fill/finish contract manufacturer incorporating 100% isolator-based sterile filling to its lines for syringes, vials and cartridges for the biotech and pharmaceutical industries. The isolator-based filling technology removes the risk of human contamination from the formulation and filling process and deepens Sharp’s clinical manufacturing capabilities.
