CSS Opens new Production Facility
Craigavon - Europe's fastest growing chemical services provider for biopharma-ceutical companies, Chemical Synthesis Services (CSS), has opened a 80,000 sq ft state-of-the-art laboratory complex in Craigavon, Northern Ireland. In September CCS inaugurated its new headquarters with facilities for the manufacturing of biological molecules (oligonucleotides, peptides, carbohydrats), for the synthesis of small molecules like cytotoxins, for analytical services like NMR, mass spectro-metry or separation technologies, and with a small cGMP facility.
The investment of £25 million will create 200 new jobs until 2008, according to CSS owner Dr. Allen McClay. The company will provide services ranging from drug discovery to process development and clinical trails. CSS already maintains a research and development facility at the University Belfast and an analytical services centre in Coleraine.
