Ribbon-cutting celebrates new 65,000-sq.-ft. office and GMP warehouse in Horsham, PA.
Horsham, PA, September 22, 2021 – Myonex, a leading global clinical trial supply company, marked the opening of its new global headquarters and US operational facility with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on the company’s 14-acre campus.
“Let’s take a moment to remember the deeper reason why we’re here,” James Lovett, Chief Executive Officer at Myonex, said at the Sept. 21 event, noting that people die of diseases for which “the cures are not ready yet. For every patient, we are in a race against time to discover the right cure. At Myonex, our purpose—and this building’s purpose—is to help win this race more often.”
Acknowledging the critical importance of clinical trials, which take an average of six years and fall behind schedule 85 percent of the time, Lovett said, “At Myonex, our mission is to make clinical trial supply faster and less expensive” with services like packaging and distribution that can respond quickly to protocol changes; a new CTRx prescription service that can speed study start-up and eliminate wasted doses; end-to-end supply chain management for key equipment and supplies; and unique global drug sourcing capabilities that can potentially save millions of dollars.
“When we keep the focus on our customers, the patients and each other, there is nothing we can’t accomplish,” said Michael Cohen, Myonex’s Executive Chairman.
The 65,000-square-foot facility features a 45,000-sq.-ft. warehouse and distribution center with staging, shipping and receiving areas; rack storage in ambient temperatures and 2–8-degree Celsius cold box; -20-degree C and -80-degree C freezer storage; and secondary labeling rooms, all designed to current good manufacturing practices (GMP) guidelines.
The building’s 20,000 square feet of office space is designed to provide a great working environment, with adjustable ergonomic desks, showers, a comfort room and other amenities for employees. It incorporates low-emitting materials and LED lighting with motion sensors to reduce the environmental footprint.
The ribbon-cutting was held in person on site and live-streamed for the company’s customers and its employees in the United Kingdom and Germany. It included a video tour of the new facility, showing office spaces as well as operational areas and features such as the label control room, the secure cage in the cold-storage room, quarantine and returns cages and walk-in freezer.
The new facility was necessary to support the company’s growth, and the site can accommodate further expansion.Myonex News
