AMERSHAM, United Kingdom, July 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- An ongoing strategic growth plan from Cytiva and Pall Corporation, part of the Danaher (NYSE: DHR) Corporation, will expand manufacturing capacity and services across geographies for global life sciences customers.
The investment, already underway, includes new sites, expansion at existing factories, and is additional to previously announced investments. It follows five acquisitions made by the companies so far this year.
Emmanuel Ligner, Danaher Group Executive, says: "Our customers tell us they need access to manufacturing agility, a robust global supply chain and more regional options. This investment further fuels our expansion program so we can rapidly meet the current and future needs of our customers and ultimately, their patients."

The companies are investing:
- 600+ million USD in chromatography resins – media for analyzing or purifying biomolecules – establishing a new manufacturing site in the US.
- 400+ million USD in cell culture media – in liquid or powder form this is used to grow and cultivate cells before they are purified– expand operations in the US, UK, and Austria.
- 300+ million USD in single-use technologies – including bioreactor bags for growing cells used to make personalized medicines and syringe filters for scientific research – expand operations in the US and the UK, as well as fitting out a new facility in Cardiff, Wales.
- 200+ million USD for continuing expansion work in Cytiva and Pall Corporation's sites across China and the rest of the Asia-Pacific region, Europe, and the US.
