ground-breaking ceremony at Boehringer © Boehringer Ingelheim

The expansion drive represents the largest single investment in the history of the company, and the largest corporate investment in Vienna since the construction of the General Motors factory in Aspern in 1979. The new facility, which will be put into operation in 2021, will produce biopharmaceuticals in the future with the help of cell cultures.

“This investment comprises a sustainable commitment of the management which secures the Vienna site for decades”, says Philipp von Lattorff, Managing Director of Boehringer Ingelheim Regional Center Vienna. Up until now, Boehringer Ingelheim has produced drugs in the Austrian capital with the help of yeasts and bacteria. The new cell culture facility is a response on the part of the company to fast growing demand for biopharmaceutical drugs. As one of the world’s leading contract manufacturers in this sector, the project will help us further strengthen our market position”, explains Wolfgang Baiker, Global Head of Biopharmaceuticals and Production at Boehringer Ingelheim.
