When contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO), Grand River Aseptic Manufacturing (GRAM), made the business decision to triple their production space, they turned to CRB.
CLIENT: Grand River Aseptic Manufacturing
LOCATION: Grand Rapids, Michigan
The highly regarded CDMO has experienced rapid growth and wanted a fast-tracked schedule. They chose CRB for our ability to meet their desired deadline with our ONEsolution™ project delivery method. Breaking ground in October 2018, the 60,000-square-foot facility was built in just 20 months.

PROJECT SIZE: 60,000 sq ft

The facility and equipment upgrades allow GRAM to offer high-speed manufacturing for all commercial batch sizes. Formulation volumes increased to 1,000 liters, filling up to 200 vials per minute, lyophilization capacity to 68,000 vials, and there’s still room for further production expansions.

“TThrough close collaboration and enhanced planning with GRAM’s project team, the facility’s operational turn-over, validation and equipment start-up began earlier than otherwise possible, allowing GRAM to begin qualifications and media fills early this year”
