BOC Edwards Pharmaceutical Systems signs $13 million deal

June 20, 2005
BOC Edwards Pharmaceutical Systems has signed a $13M deal to supply a combination of its engineered-to-order loading and freeze drying production equipment to one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical manufacturers. The bespoke system includes four Lyomax freeze dryers and four fixed single-sided automated vial loading/unloading systems and will be a major part of the company’s production facilities in Puerto Rico. The deal is expected to have a final total value of over $21.4 million. The order further expands the significant installed equipment base for freeze dryers, automated loading systems and filling equipment that BOC Edwards Pharmaceutical Systems has in Puerto Rico. These installations are supported from a dedicated customer service facility that was opened by the company in 2000.
