Siegfried breaks ground at Minden
Siegfried has held a groundbreaking ceremony for the largest construction project in its history. The Swiss CDMO will be investing up to CHF 100 million on a large-scale production facility at Minden, Germany. This will have up to 100 m3 of additional reactor capacity for API production when it is commissioned in 2024.
In addition, the firm said, the new facility will “significantly expand the technological possibilities and flexibility of Siegfried’s global network”. Added CEO Wolfgang Wienand: “We have grown successfully in a challenging environment in recent years and want to continue on this path consistently. The new plant in Minden will help us to become an even more attractive partner for our customers.”
Siegfried acquired Minden from BASF in 2015, along with other API facilities at Evionnaz in Switzerland and Saint-Vulbas in France. Along with another German site at Hameln, it employs around 1,000 and makes a wide range of APIs and other medicinal products.
