Sartorius, a leading international partner of life science research and the biopharmaceutical industry, is further growing its global production capacity with the expansion of its manufacturing site in Tunisia. Enabling the Germany-based company to increase the production of fluid management technologies, it invested more than 20 million euros for a new 10,000 square-meter building and corresponding operation equipment at its existing M’Hamdia location. The extension includes clean rooms totalling around 2,400 square meters with adjacent warehouse and logistics facilities, among others. Sartorius currently has almost 800 employees in M’Hamdia and anticipates job growth at the site in the future.
“We are significantly investing in the expansion of our worldwide capacities to meet ongoing high demand from the biopharmaceutical industry. The new state-of-the-art fluid management facility in M’Hamdia not only supports this approach but also demonstrates our long-term commitment to Tunisia”, said René Fáber, member of the Executive Board for the Bioprocess Solutions Division of Sartorius, on the occasion of the official opening of the new building
