Swedish contract development and manufacturing organisation (CDMO) Recipharm is planning to expand its blow fill seal (BFS) capacity at its site in Kaysersberg, with an investment of €18m.

The French sterile facility is specialised in blow fill seal technology for sterile liquids.

As part of the investment plan, the company will install a new blow fill seal high-speed filling and packaging line, increasing the total number to eight. To increase capacity by 50%, Recipharm plans to add a further three filling lines over the coming years.

Recipharm expects the new lines to double the size of its operations from 2,000m2 to 4,150m2.
