ALLERGAN – MEDICAL DEVICE CAPACITY INCREASE
In order to increase capacity (25% growth/year – target 14 million packs), Allergan planned to revamp and extend its existing medical device manufacturing plant in France. The overall project is approximately 4,000 square meters.
For this purpose, Allergan developed a conceptual design and then looked after the services of an engineering and project management organization able to plan, consult, design and produce all documentation and coordinate the implementation of the project. Pharmaplan supported the project realization by first carrying out a basic design phase in order to develop all the concepts defined during the preliminary studies. This allowed Allergan to validate the technical and pharmaceutical execution of the project with a more precise idea of the costs and schedule. We then moved into the detailed design phase, expanding the building shell to accommodate new receiving warehouse space and expanding the existing packaging area with one new line in one hand and revamping the bulk area in the other hand. In addition, we defined the upgrade of all associated house and clean utilities and technical areas.
