Almac Group opens a new custom-built GMP warehouse at its Global Headquarters

The new custom-built facility will consolidate the existing warehouses to support all manufacturing and laboratory activities.

Almac Sciences, a member of the Almac Group, has officially opened a new custom-built GMP warehouse and dispatch hub at its Global Headquarters in Craigavon, UK.

The new 19,500 square foot facility consolidates the existing warehouses and supply chain offices and will provide support to all Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) manufacturing and laboratory activities, from development to commercialisation.

The warehouse has capacity to store 500 pallets of solvent, 800 pallets of 15-25oC materials as well as walk-in fridge and freezer- all of which are connected to an Environmental Monitoring System (EMS).  The facility also houses downflow booths for sampling incoming materials and is the centralised location for all staff in the Supply Chain department.  An extensive expansion area also remains for additional office space on the first floor.

This new building forms part of the multi-million-pound manufacturing investment programme to support client requirements. The first stage of Almac’s GMP facility expansion was announced in December 2022 with an extension to its current GMP manufacturing facility.  The next stage will create manufacturing centres of excellence to support small molecule API production at up to 200 – 300kg scale, as well as increased capacity for peptide API production.

Michael Rainey, Head of Supply Chain, Almac Sciences said: “The new warehouse has been designed to ensure there is sufficient capacity to support our manufacturing expansions in line with the GMP storage of raw materials and manufactured API. The consolidation of the Warehouse areas and Supply Chain offices provides a new central location for the warehousing, purchasing, imports and dispatch teams to provide support to the business’ ongoing growth plans.”
