Medical compounder Compounding Solutions is doubling the size of its plant and adding production capacity there as well.
The expansion at the firm's headquarters site in Lewiston, Maine, will include two manufacturing areas as well as office and warehouse space and a new cleanroom for medical compounding, company officials said in a Jan. 3 news release.
Groundbreaking is expected this spring. When completed, the site will cover more than 120,000 square feet. In 2016, Compounding Solutions added 4,000 square feet for lab work and record retention.
The project also will allow for the addition of eight compounding lines, bringing Compounding Solutions' total number of lines to 21. It also will allow the firm to add 25-30 jobs over the next two years, bringing its total headcount to around 100.
The expansion “will provide us with the warehouse space we need today, plus the production capacity and facility resources that we will require over the next five years,” General Manager Scott Neal said in the release.
Compounding Solutions was founded in 1999 and makes a range of compounds and concentrates for catheters and other medical devices.
