AMRI Opens New Research Facility in Budapest, Hungary

Laboratory Expansion Strengthens Commitment to Chemistry R&D Platform in Europe

24-Jun-2009 - Hungaria

AMRI announced that it has finished the construction of a new state-of-the-art chemistry R&D facility in Budapest, Hungary. The successful completion and move into 32,300 square feet (3,000 square meters) of laboratory and administrative space marks a significant milestone in the company’s plan initiated in 2008 to transform its European hub into a higher value discovery services business through consolidation of multiple locations, equipment and operating costs.

In addition to the significant improvements in operational efficiencies and enhanced technology transfer, the new site provides capacity for the anticipated expansion of synthetic chemistry services, currently projected to double over the next five years.

“The successful completion of this expansion increases the ability of AMRI to execute on its strategy to accelerate growth and expand its presence in the European marketplace,” said Chairman, CEO and President Thomas E. D’Ambra, Ph.D. “Critical to the decision to undertake this project was the company’s drive to cultivate a customer base relatively untapped. We believe this latest investment, along with our parallel investments in the US, India and Singapore, will further strengthen AMRI’s presence as a premier provider of a broad range of scientific services, capabilities and geographic choices around the globe.”
