The new facility, announced last week, nearly doubles Legacy’s total footprint to more than 500,000 square feet.
The new space allows Legacy Pharmaceutical Packaging to significantly grow its existing third-party logistics operations. The company has plans to divide the open-design building into dedicated departments. There will be departments for new SKU handling and artwork, a retail management team for real-time inventory monitoring and reordering, an automated oversight initiative to best ensure quality and price competitiveness via enhanced efficiencies, and a warehousing and shipping wing to finalize and even deliver finished products.
“The new facility allows us to dramatically ramp up third-party logistics and distribution services that we’ve already been performing for quite some time,” Legacy Pharmaceutical Packaging CEO Dave Spence said in a news release. “As the needs of our customers evolve, this provides an opportunity to offer a more comprehensive service offering well beyond our traditional role as a contract packaging organization. Increasingly, Legacy is becoming a turnkey, start-to-finish partner for preparing, finalizing and bringing finished products directly to market.”
Legacy Pharmaceutical Packaging provides pharma with bottling, blistering, pouching, unit-of-use, serialization, compliance and secondary packaging services.
