Athlone, Ireland, 09 October 2018 – as reported in October 2017, Irish based Arran Chemical Company, has responded to client demand for the provision of fine chemicals, pharmaceutical intermediates and advanced building blocks by implementation of its three stage ADAPT (Arran Deploys Advanced Production Technologies) strategy through a multi-million Euro investment. The investment is focused around increasing capacity, further application of its selectAZyme™ biocatalysis technology and implementation of flow chemistry. Arran is proud to announce the completion of Stage II of the strategy and the positive benefit to its global client base.

Following acquisition by the Almac Group in November 2015, Arran has completed a sustained programme of investment in people and infrastructure to meet growing product diversity and production demands. As reported in 2017, Arran’s manufacturing plant assets have been upgraded bringing total manufacturing capacity to approximately 85 m3 with vessels ranging from kilo laboratory scale to 8 m3. The final phase of investment will involve the introduction of specialist flow manufacturing technologies.
