The AndersonBrecon site in Rockford, Illinois

UK-based Brecon Pharmaceuticals and Anderson Packaging in the US, which offer clinical trials customers a global packaging, storage and distribution service, have recently expanded their Rockford, Illinois site to provide customers on each side of the Atlantic with harmonised, tailored solutions.

The sister companies – which are both part of the AmerisourceBergen Corporation – teamed up in February to provide solutions under the AndersonBrecon Clinical Services name. The company offers pharmaceutical solutions from Phase I trials to commercial product launches and post-approval studies and employs 20 people.

Facilities at Rockford now incorporate class 100M/ISO 8 level cleanrooms, placebo capsule manufacturing facilities and equipment, which can package solid oral doses and powders in pouches, bottles and blisters. There are also secondary packaging facilities that can be interconnected for scalable and multi-stage operations. Capabilities include child-resistant blister carding and secondary labelling.

The new equipment joins the facility’s on-site packaging, storage and distribution services that cater for investigational products including cold chain support for refrigerated and frozen products, as well as laboratory services for analytical development and testing.

‘The relationship between Brecon Pharmaceuticals and Anderson Packaging has enabled us to provide customers with top-quality clinical trials services,’ said Sue Miles, head of clinical trials services at Brecon, which is based in Hay-on-Wye.

‘In this increasingly globalised world, it is imperative that we are able to offer our clients fast, tailored and trustworthy solutions to their product markets.’

Brecon works closely with its AmerisourceBergen Packaging Group sister companies Anderson Packaging (Rockford, IL) and American Health Packaging (Columbus, OH) to deliver harmonised services in Europe, the Americas and beyond.
