By March of 2020, we had determined that the global need for vaccines and therapeutics to combat the Covid-19 pandemic, in addition to the already expansive pipeline of non-Covid-related therapeutics, would require us to implement a substantial increase in our manufacturing capacity for the raw materials, assemblies, and technologies used by our customers.

Within the last two years, we initiated an ambitious multi-year expansion strategy aimed at increasing supply security through improving the resilience of our manufacturing operations.
