ABOUT AMGEN SINGAPORE
In 2014, Amgen inaugurated its groundbreaking Next Generation Biomanufacturing facility in Tuas Biomedical Park, marking the company’s first manufacturing site in Asia.
Also making it monumental: It was Amgen’s first commercial-ready site aimed at increasing production capabilities. Our goal is to make life-changing medicine more accessible to patients around the world, and Singapore has proven core to that vision.
A first-of-its-kind manufacturing facility, this facility uses the latest innovations and multiple technologies to achieve greater speed, productivity and flexibility in commercial-scale manufacturing. Built in half the construction time and at approximately one quarter of the capital cost, this facility boasts a significantly smaller manufacturing footprint and higher environmental efficiencies with less water and energy consumed and carbon emitted. In less than 2.5 years, the facility has successfully achieved regulatory approvals to produce biologic medicines from various major international regulatory bodies.
EXPANSION IN THE REGION
In 2015, Amgen further expanded our manufacturing presence with the establishment of its first commercial chemical synthesis manufacturing facility.
Located at Tuas Biomedical Park, this facility produces the active pharmaceutical ingredient to treat multiple myeloma. The facility has since achieved regulatory approvals from various major international regulatory bodies in 2019.
In the same year, Amgen established its commercial presence to serve patients suffering from serious illnesses in Singapore. Partnering local governmental bodies and the community, this local affiliate drives Amgen’s commercial business development, marketing and sales efforts and ensures our innovative biopharmaceuticals reach patients, payers and physicians across the region. It currently has 10 innovative medicines marketed in Singapore and proactively support programs to address healthcare challenges.
Amgen’s expansion in Singapore brings new jobs and even more innovative therapies to the Asian-Pacific region — and far beyond.
