The manufacturing facility located in Ireland (Dublin) was built in 1998 and expanded in 2009.
The total area of the plant amounts to 10,200 sqm, with a recent extension of 1,800 sqm.
At the Dublin plant, the activities carried out are primarily the preparation and packaging of oral solids (sachets, tablets and capsules) and the preparation of crystalline glucosamine sulfate.
The production facility is under expansion and new production units will be ready by the first half of 2015. The Dublin plant holds numerous certifications, including the license granted by the Irish Medical Committee (Irish Medicines Board), the Brazilian ANVISA certification and the German certification for medical devices (TUV); the certification in Saudi Arabia is currently in progress.
