Five Tips To Ensure Faster Equipment Procurement And Installation
As pharmaceutical manufacturers’ equipment budgets continue to rise, demand grows for acquiring equipment that addresses today’s trends. These five tips can ensure that, whether purchasing new or used equipment, the entire procurement process runs as efficiently as possible.
Strategies For Managing Equipment Surplus In Pharma

Major trends in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology manufacturing industries are driving significant shifts in the management of laboratory and processing equipment inventory. Pharmaceutical manufacturers must be aware of the outlets for their surplus and idled equipment so that they do not lose opportunities to redeploy that equipment to another area of the business or sell it for cash.

Investment Recovery For Pharma Equipment

Mergers and acquisitions among pharmaceutical companies, as well as an ever-changing product mix, leads to surplus capital equipment among pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities. Often, these surplus inventories occupy valuable manufacturing and lab space, or they are in storage facilities or "bone yards." An effective capital equipment investment recovery strategy can help turn idled equipment into moneymaking assets.

Key Considerations During A Merger Or Acquisition

Over the last decade, mergers and acquisitions have come to define both growth and consolidation in the pharmaceutical industry. Often, a merger or acquisition is the quickest, most cost-effective way to realize advanced capability without building a facility from the ground up. However, even a successful merger or acquisition of manufacturing facilities creates a range of asset management issues.
