COMECER Group: contract signed with CO.DON AG for € 10 million

The Italian group will provide the German biopharmaceutical company with the equipment for the new production site in Leipzig

Castel Bolognese (RA), 18 January 2018

COMECER Group – a leader in designing and manufacturing isolation equipment and systems intended for the pharmaceutical and nuclear medicine industries and selling in more than 100 countries around the world, announces the signing of the agreement with CO.DON AG – a German biopharmaceutical company committed to research, development and marketing of autologous cell therapies for the repair of cartilage defects, – relating to the supply of modular isolator and cell culture incubation systems in aseptic environment for the new production site being built in Leipzig. The value of the contract is approximately € 10 million.

The installation and consequent start up of COMECER equipment at the Leipzig plant is foreseen in the next 10-12 months. This order, which confirms COMECER`s high reliability and the excellence of its products, is particularly important since the equipment made in Castel Bolognese will be used inside one of Europe`s main biopharmaceutical plants.

Alessia Zanelli, CEO of Comecer Group: “We are honoured to be part of this great project in what is considered the future of medicine. The fact that our patented technology has been selected by CO.DON makes us proud and confirms the considerable commitment undertaken by our company in this rapidly developing sector”.

Ralf Jakobs, CEO of CO.DON AG: “We are delighted to have such an experienced partner as COMECER, with its many years of specialist expertise. Together we will perform this challenging task. CO.DON is entering a new dimension: once all the work is finished, the production site will be one of the world’s largest and most modern plants for the industrial-scale production of human cells. It will enable us to ensure the supply of the highest quality cell therapy products to our customers in Germany and Europe going forward”.
