"Podified" Manufacturing Facilities and Risk Mitigation of Aging Pharmaceutical Facilities
Maik Jornitz , Chief Operating Officer, of G-Con Manufacturing, was recent interviewed at INTERPHEX 2014 to discuss current and new facility designs for the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry. Maik is the co-chair of the PDA task force on aging facilities. Pods can be transported into either new or existing facilities. Pods can then be connected to the existing utilities and the once aging facility is now a modern facility. G-CON’s flexible, modular production units, PODs, are a unique, disruptive technology, which has not been seen within the industry since single-use bags entered the market. PODs will change the production site design of future facilities in the pharmaceutical, but especially biotech and CMO segment.
