Catalent Continues Investment In Global Clinical Supply Services with German Warehousing & Controlled Substance Expansion
Somerset, NJ – March 7, 2012 — Catalent Pharma Solutions announced the completion of extended warehousing facilities in Schorndorf, Germany for its Clinical Supply Services business. This increased capacity for the storage and distribution of Investigational Medicinal Products (IMPs) incorporates dedicated storage for controlled, highly potent or cytotoxic drugs.
