Lucio Giambattista, Executive Vice President SHL Group and Managing Director SHL Medical USA, commented on the expansion stating, "We are excited about this latest expansion project as it is very customer driven. We have built up close relationships with some of the world’s largest pharma and biotech companies over the years and this facility will allow us to offer even more services to these partners. Now, with packaging, labeling and distribution services available in-house, SHL will truly be a one-stop-shop for drug delivery devices, from product design to delivery."
SHL has been significantly expanding facilities and recruiting new employees as the result of several recently signed long-term supply agreements. In addition to the new Florida facility, SHL has already publicly announced capital expenditures of over $USD 100 million and is forecasting to globally hire 1000 new employees over the next few years.
