Sharp Completes Pennsylvania Facility

The first phase of development is complete.

Sharp Clinical Services has successfully finished a $2.5m relocation project, moving its clinical storage and distribution services from its Phoenixville site. The company plans to transfer packaging, manufacturing and analytical services to the facility in late-2018, after spending an additional $6.4 million.

The facility allows for 1.5 million cubic feet of capacity on a 16-acre plot. The development will double the space for both cold and controlled-temperature storage.

President of Sharp Clinical Services, Frank Lis, noted: “The Bethlehem facility is a strategically important investment for Sharp. It will allow us to offer greater capacity, scalability and automation in response to growing demand for our services, as well as co-locating our clinical services at one facility. This facility allows us to simultaneously support multiple large-scale phase III studies through to commercial launch.”

Sharp specializes in blister packaging, bottling, pouches, compliance packaging, formulation and manufacturing services, label design and printing.
