The size of the investment is not disclosed.
Prof. Dr. Hanns-Christian Mahler, CEO of ten23 health, commented: «Only five months ago, swissfillon joined ten23 health. This first expansion of the footprint in Visp is a strong commitment to our location in the Valais as well as Switzerland and a testimonial of the competent and experienced team at Visp. Furthermore, it is an important step in our long-term strategy to expand our manufacturing capacity for complex sterile dosage forms for our customers and their patients. »
