The support VDS delivers throughout the entire product development cycle can now start earlier, and the proximity to our customers will contribute to streamlining the process and delivering the final product faster.
Ravensburg, Germany (Vocus) September 25, 2009 –-
One of the world’s leading providers of aseptically pre-filled injection systems, Vetter will open Vetter Development Service (VDS), a technologically advanced customer service facility located in Chicago, allowing the company to provide greater commitment and support toward the product needs of its North American customers. Using state-of-the-art technology, Vetter will be capable of aseptically filling very small quantities of products in the new facility, providing faster and more streamlined product delivery and customer service. Headquartered in Ravensburg, Germany, Vetter sees the new facility as a major investment in Vetter Pharma International GmbH.
Working hand-in-hand with customers from clinical development through to market launch has allowed Vetter to develop an ideal mode of delivery for highly sensitive, active ingredients. With its new location in the heart of the United States, Vetter can now process and test small quantities of materials by bringing the development process closer to many key customers, enabling greater cooperation at the earliest stages of development and minimizing the need to transport products.
For Vetter’s many North American customers, a shorter time to market will soon be facilitated, by its Chicago location according to Peter Soelkner, Managing Director at Vetter. “The opening of this new cutting-edge VDS facility shows Vetter’s firm, strategic commitment to the North American market by bringing the state of the art technology to the heart of the U.S.,” said Peter Soelkner. “The support VDS delivers throughout the entire product development cycle can now start earlier, and the proximity to our customers will contribute to streamlining the process and delivering the final product faster.”
Located in Chicago, the new approx 25.000 square feet VDS facility will open end of 2009.
