About G-Con Manufacturing
G-CON was founded to address the fact that existing systems and methodologies for constructing biomanufacturing and personalized medicine suites were neither affordable nor flexible enough to meet the rapidly changing market's needs. G-CON's founders have significant experience in designing, building, operating, and maintaining a variety of traditional biomanufacturing facilities. They are familiar with the excessive cost to build, lack of flexibility, and high expense to maintain these traditional facilities and have leveraged this experience to create the G-CON POD™ solution. Moreover, the G-CON team understands that future facility designs must be multipurpose and repurposable, instead of fixed and specialized with ineffective capacity utilization.
