Cook Pharmica Recognized as Facility of the Year
Cook Pharmica LLC, the contract biopharmaceutical manufacturing division of Cook Medical, won the 2017 Facility of the Year Award. This prestigious global industry award is sponsored by the International Society of Pharmaceutical Engineers (ISPE), INTERPHEX and Pharmaceutical Processing magazine. Cook Pharmica was selected as the category winner for Equipment Innovation highlighting its “Flexible Filling Line.” Seeing a shift in industry to extend the ready-to-use vials platform and utilize new capabilities for filling flexibility, Cook Pharmica combined activities of what would traditionally be three filling lines into one line under barrier isolation in a single filling suite.
Cook Pharmica LLC, also won the 2007 Facility of the Year Award due to its “Project Phoenix” operation—a $70 million transformation of a vacant, multilevel color television assembly plant in Bloomington, Indiana, into a biopharmaceutical contract manufacturing facility.
