TryggPharma Re-opens Teeside Pharma Plant

TryggPharma of Norway is set to re-open a former Lundbeck Pharmaceuticals site in Seal Sands, creating 25 new pharmaceutical jobs, reports peterleemail.com.

A £14 million deal has been agreed in which Lundbeck will sell their site, which they closed during the recession. TryggPharma’s vice president of engineering Peter Harper has said the company is “very impressed with the facility [as it has] easy to access from Norway, Europe and our customers around the world”.

The facility is expected to employ 25 people within 12 months and the company has said there is a “commitment to invest and expand into the future of Teeside”. The North East Process Industry Cluster chief executive Stan Higgins has said the re-opening of the site is “great news for Teeside and for the pharmaceutical sector in particular”.
