Introduction

Amgen Dun Laoghaire (ADL) is a 37,000-square-metre aseptic operations facility with freeze-dry product (lyophilization) and liquid vial-filling capabilities. Located on a 25-acre site on the coast about 11km (seven miles) south of the capital Dublin, ADL specializes in secondary manufacturing activities – formulation, fill and packaging. The ADL site also includes a bioprocessing suite and laboratories.

Amgen purchased the site in May 2011 and completed a $200 million plus expansion to add a new state-of-the-art production module, a cold-chain warehouse and renovation and expansion of existing analytical laboratories, among other enhancements. The site team is currently engaged in one of the largest and fastest technology transfer programs in Amgen’s history.
