About the Expansion:

Pharma Production Building E (PPE) is Baxter's latest major expansion in Halle. The expanded facility is dedicated to contract manufacturing of oncology products. Our long-time experience in sterile manufacturing has been utilized by our engineers to design a building with a strong focus on our customers and their need for flexibility, product quality and high yield.

Transparency is one of the key features of the new building. Glass was used to enhance visibility of the manufacturing lines and processes. This "facility made out of glass" concept allows you to view the actual critical manufacturing processes in a clean room class A while conveniently standing in a clean room class D.

Key Features of the Facility Expansion

Facility Expansion Facility Expansion
  • 1800 sqm footprint with 2 independent manufacturing lines designed for oncology drugs
