Catalent Completes Expansion of Its Advanced Dose Form Facility In Italy

Somerset, NJ - February 1, 2012 - Catalent Pharma Solutions announces the completion of the on-going expansion of its facility in Aprilia, Italy. This expansion offers customers a complete ‘turnkey' service from product conceptualization to formulation, development, production and packaging for prescription and over-the-counter products. It also further enhances Catalent's comprehensive European quality and analytical capabilities that include a wide range of services such as market registration, analytical testing and market release by Qualified Persons.

Catalent has proven expertise in overcoming solubility, stability and bioavailability challenges for a wide range of liquid and semi-solid formulations. Innovative products manufactured at its Aprilia site include Vegicaps® capsules which enable better treatments through enhanced bioavailability for a wide range of APIs requiring higher temperature processing.

"Expanding our drug delivery capabilities and expertise reinforces Catalent Aprilia's position as a leading integrated development and delivery facility in Southern Europe," said Stefano Arena, General Manager of the site.

This expansion was successfully inspected by the Italian Medicines Agency, Agenzia Italiana del Farmaco (AIFA) last month, and is the latest in a number of expansions that Catalent has made across Europe, South America and the United States.
