Pharmadule Morimatsu provides the clients with "core equipment/Machinery + Value added + digitalized intelligence overall Plant Solutions and Service" ("MVP Solutions & Service"), bringing certainty to customers to achieve rapid commercial production and shorter time to market.

This strategic cooperation starts with the integrated modular plant of two important production facilities in the Singapore CRDMO Center of WuXi Biologics, and will include design, manufacturing, FAT, installation, commissioning and validation. The project will adopt a new generation of modular fabrication, and the majority of works will be built, assembled and FAT-tested in Morimatsu's workshop. The quality, schedule, cost and risk of the project will be well managed and controlled. Compared with conventional construction, this method also greatly shortens the project cycle.
