Companies announced their first manufacturing agreement in July 2013 to collaborate in the production of a single commercial antibody cancer drug substance.

Companies will increase the scope of their existing manufacturing agreement in which Samsung will manufacture commercial drug substances and drug product for several Bristol-Myers Squibb biologic medicines at its Incheon manufacturing site. Financial terms of the agreement are not disclosed.

"Biologic medicines that treat serious diseases are an integral part of Bristol-Myers Squibb’s specialty care portfolio and R&D pipeline," said Lou Schmukler, president, Global Manufacturing & Supply. "The expanded relationship with Samsung will increase our biologics manufacturing capability and give us the flexibility to respond to increased demand in order to meet the global needs of patients."

"Samsung is delighted to reach the second manufacturing agreement with Bristol-Myers Squibb and we look forward to delivering top quality GMP production," said Dr. TH Kim, president and CEO of Samsung BioLogics. "It represents another significant step for Samsung and Bristol-Myers Squibb in strengthening our biopharmaceutical manufacturing relationship."

Samsung brings global biopharmaceutical capability through its fully-integrated production facilities that offer process development, drug substance manufacturing, and drug product fill & finish services at one location. In addition to its current biologics manufacturing facility in Incheon, Korea, the company is currently building a second facility, also in Incheon, which is expected to be completed in early 2015.
