CHARLESTON, S.C., May 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Alcami Corporation, a leading provider of custom development and manufacturing services for the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, today announced an investment of at least $5 million in the expansion of its existing Charleston County operations. This project is expected to lead to the creation of at least 30 new jobs.
Alcami offers a variety of biopharmaceutical services across active pharmaceutical ingredients, drug products (sterile, oral solid dose, packaging and labeling), development services and analytical testing. With six state-of-the-art locations in the United States and a seventh in the Netherlands, the company has supported more than 500 Investigational New Drug (IND) filings over the past 30 years.
Located at 4221 Faber Place Drive in North Charleston, S.C., Alcami will continue to expand its filling and freeze-drying capabilities. The site has recently produced clinical supply from its recently-qualified second line and doubled both its filling capacity and freeze-drying capacity with increased scheduling flexibility, including a third operating shift. Hiring for the new positions is already underway, and interested applicants should visit Alcami's careers page online for more information.
