Telstar’s production area of process equipment will reach up to 28,000m2 in the next three years
Telstar is announcing a new expansion plan that, on the back of continuous demand levels in 2020, is designed to meet the forecasted growth in production over the next three years. It is a new stage that leads the company to assure a sustained organic growth and an increase in production capacity through the enlargement of their production areas worldwide. The three main manufacturing centres of Telstar in Spain, the United Kingdom and China is planned to reach a total of 28,000m2 in 2024, doubling the existing production space to meet their demands with high quality in terms of processing, innovation, operational improvement and delivering.
In the framework of a business action plan designed for 2021-2024, Telstar will consolidate its international position as a leading provider of aseptic process solutions for pharmaceutical companies and other industries linked to life sciences, in addition of research centres and laboratories. After experiencing a sustainable growth throughout the last three years, the company foresees an activity growth in process equipment and associated technologies demand as well as engineering, construction, GMP services and automation technologies geared to the upgrading and building of new pharmaceutical plants and critical installations in the field of biotechnology. The enlargement of production areas will enable the company to respond to an expected growing demand in the next 3 years period.
The expansion plan started in 2020, doubling production areas in Spain and the United Kingdom. The new spaces are specifically designed for the manufacturing of process equipment with freeze drying, sterilization (Barcelona) and isolation technologies (Leeds), as well as to produce special equipment. In addition, a new logistic center in Barcelona with a storage capacity of 22.500 m3 was set up in 2019 in order to absorb the additional production. The production capacity in Spain, is aimed at the manufacture and assembly of highly complex and technologically demanding integrated equipment developed with sterilization, freeze-drying, containment, and clean air technologies. For large or highly complex integrated projects, Telstar follows a multi-plant management model, in close collaboration with its technology centres around the world.
At the same time, the center of the company in Bristol PA (United States) will move to a new facility in the mid-term to strengthen continuous demand for Telstar’s technology in North America.
Telstar production processes and systems are accredited to both ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 and the ASME technical certification and PED Certificate in the field of mechanical engineering. The standardization of innovative technology ensures ongoing process improvement and effectiveness. The international expansion plan will generate high skill employment, adding to the current Telstar workforce of more than 900 employees.
