VALO BioMedia continues growth course

VALO BioMedia continues growth course
Also in the past year, VALO BioMedia continued undiminished its growth course. The goal still remains to globally offer customers a maximum of security of supply, flexibility and local service by means of extended production capacities for LSL SPF animals and new locations.

New production system in Germany

Thus, construction works are running at full speed at the new location Wusterwitz in Brandenburg, Germany. The first housing is planned there for the end of October. In order to efficiently handle the considerably increased production in Germany, the grading station in Großenhain near the city of Bremen is enlarged as well. Furthermore, all corresponding processes are improved and modernized for the benefit of the customers.

VALO BioMedia España has taken similar action and is enlarging its own production capacities to respond to the increasing local demand.

The signs are set for growth in the United States of America, too. A completely new location is under construction in Taneytown, Maryland. By analogy with the systems in Germany, the site is equipped with the most advanced production systems being in line with long-term animal welfare requirements. At the end of this year, VALO BioMedia North America will therefore dispose of production capacities in three federal states: Kansas, Iowa and Maryland.

With effect of July 1st 2012 VALO BioMedia do Brasil acquired a SPF Farming complex from Brasil Foods. The farm in Uberlandia is operating successfully since many years and will augment the production network of VALO BioMedia with a presence in a strategically important growth market.

Also in the area of producing so-called Clean Eggs for the manufacture of influenza vaccines or inactivated poultry vaccines, VALO BioMedia has built two new locations both separately and in cooperation with local affiliated companies.

Since the end of 2011, VALO BioMedia Mexico provides customers from the human and veterinary vaccines industry with Clean Eggs. For this purpose, five production sites have been completely refurbished and two new hatcheries have been built.

Farm building in Brazil

On behalf of VALO BioMedia Hy-Line North America supplies an important influenza vaccine manufacturer with pre-incubated LSL clean eggs produced in several new farms and a new preincubation site in Tamaqua.
