Jubilant HollisterStier has announced that the Montreal-based manufacturing facility has completed the first phase of an expansion of their sterile manufacturing capacity, with the addition of a new ampoule filling line utilizing a rigid barrier system.

“We are excited to complete this phase of our optimization strategy in sterile manufacturing. Our site in Montreal will be well positioned to continue offering multiple dosage platforms for our global customers. We have been fortunate to secure several new contracts that will utilize our expanded capacity starting this year” said Jubilant HollisterStier Chief Executive Officer, Marcelo Morales.
