Dave Hoffman, President of Hovione’s U.S. Operations, is pleased to announce Wayne Davis has joined the staff of the Technology Transfer Centre (TTC) as Director of Technology Transfer. Dr. Davis comes to Hovione from Bristol-Myers Squibb Company, (formerly DuPont Pharmaceuticals), where he gained extensive experience in piloting NCE’s and managed their technical transfer to commercial facilities. As the focal point and coordinator for all technical transfers worldwide, Wayne will prove a strong asset to Hovione who once again raises the standard for API service providers.
Hovione’s TTC opened in September 2002. The facility is now fully qualified and under normal activity. Hovione´s 3 sites, in New Jersey, Portugal and Macao, are now totally integrated in their ability to take customer projects from kilo-lab to pilot-plant through to industrial scale using a common, site independent, quality system. This common culture and the frequent rotation of staff between sites enables swift technology transfer along the life cycle of each project.
Hovione is dedicated to the development and manufacture of pharmaceutical fine chemicals. Serving exclusively the Pharma industry, Hovione has FDA inspected plants in Europe and the Far East, and Technology Transfer Centre in New Jersey. Committed to the highest levels of service and quality, Hovione’s capabilities include process chemistry, worldwide regulatory affairs, kilo to multi-ton manufacture of complex multi-step APIs and regulated intermediates under FDA and ICH cGMP standards. In the past 5 years, Hovione has been the API manufacturer behind 4 successful product launches in the USA.
