Sharp acquired the Bethlehem facility for $14m in 2017 and invested a further $9 million on a state-of-the-art refit. The development has almost 1.5 million cubic feet of clinical services capacity on a 16-acre site.

To reduce the risks, costs and supply chain complexity for Sharp’s clients, the GMP facility now offers fully integrated, co-located clinical services including:

Sharp plans to expand capacity and introduce new capabilities at the site with automated syringe assembly/labeling, automated vial labeling and automated pouch filling.
