Pfizer Inc. recently completed work on its first LEED Platinum certified pharmaceutical factory in the world, an expansion at its Dalian, China, production base.
The expansion project, an aseptic workshop for cephalosporin products, builds on the base first established in 1989 and is a key step in Pfizer's efforts to expand investment and capabilities in China, according to an Oct. 25 news release. The biopharmaceutical company partnered with Johnson Controls on the project, utilizing the firm's intelligent buildings and efficient energy solutions and consulting services.
