Groundbreaking ceremony of SHL Group new site
With the rapid growth of SHL Group and along with new innovations and technologies developed for pen and autoinjectors, the Taoyuan facility requires expansion of space and thus will be relocating to a new site in Nankan, Taoyuan. Construction started in Q4 of 2015.
In Q1 2018, all administrative offices and parts of the production will be relocated to the new site. The ground level has 12,349m2 area of space, to which a 7-stories high office-and manufacturing building with 62,603m2 total floor space is to be built on. The new facility will help SHL Group increase production capacity, improve efficiency, and raise overall manufacturing quality. This step will open new opportunities for implementing the latest manufacturing technologies.
To mark this special event, the official groundbreaking is set to be on the morning of February 2, 2016. President of SHL Group Roger Samuelsson will be present, along with the SHL Group’s senior executives such as Managing Director of Taiwan, Ulrich Faessler; Managing Director of US, Peter Noolandi; Executive VP of Commercial Operations & Business Development, Mats Persson; VP of Research & Development, Frank Isaksson; Executive VP of SHL Ventures, Stefan Ahlquist; VP of Quality Assurance & Regulatory Affairs, Shelley Chew, and VP of Supply Chain & Business Excellence, Richard Koch.
According to a recent industry report, the autoinjector market will reach US$2.5 billion globally in 2020. Autoinjectors have emerged as one of the fastest growing drug delivery solutions, driven by factors such as their ease of self-administration, allowance for at-home drug administration, decreased hospital visits (thereby reducing the cost of health care), and others. Commenting on this expansion, CEO and President of SHL Group, Roger Samuelsson states: “Customer needs have always been one of the top priorities of SHL Group. Every strategy that we make, we hope to exceed customer expectations. To meet the needs of a growing market for pen and autoinjectors, we must constantly invest in more advanced equipment and expand our production capacity.”
SHL Group keeps customer’s best interest at heart and with the expansion comes improved facility, products, and services.
