Avantor® Opens Second European Single-use Facility in the Netherlands; Supports Growing Demand for Bioproduction
Avantor, Inc., a leading global provider of mission-critical products and services to customers in the life sciences, advanced technologies and applied materials industries, announced that it has opened a new single-use facility in Hillegom, Netherlands in early October 2021. The site is Avantor’s second single-use location in Europe after its Tilburg, Netherlands site and is a significant addition to the Company’s overall cleanroom capacity in the region, servicing regional and global customers.
The Hillegom facility enables Avantor to manufacture, package and deliver single-use solutions that support all stages of biologics manufacturing.
“We continue to grow our single-use footprint and capabilities to serve the needs of the global biopharma industry,” said Dr. Ger Brophy, Executive Vice President of Biopharma Production at Avantor. “We are proud to be part of the Hillegom community and boost our presence in the Netherlands.
