Xellia's delayed factory now up and running

2020 revenue at Xellia Pharmaceuticals, a part of the Novo group, took a beating from the delayed commissioning of its US factory. Now, however, the first batch of medication has left the building.

After suffering from timing issues in inaugurating its factory in Cleveland, Ohio, Denmark's Xellia Pharmaceuticals has finally started production at its new facility, Xellia informs in a press statement after the firm shipped the first batch of antibiotics made at the plant, with sales directed at US hospitals.

"Xellia Cleveland is now commercially operational thanks to the hard work of our US team and employees across Xellia. Now that the site is in full working order, we will continue to ramp up our US operations to strengthen our market presence in anti-infective production and help provide the security of supply of vital drug products needed by US hospitals and patients," writes Patrick Brunner, vice president of Manufacturing Operations North America, in a press release.
