Draxis breaks ground for new facility

Canadian radiopharmaceutical developer Draxis Health of Mississauga, Ontario, reported it has started construction of its second packaging and warehousing facility in Montreal.

The 77,000-sq-ft facility is the result of Draxis' recently announced contract with Johnson & Johnson Consumer Companies. The company plans to have about 50 employees located at this facility, part of the 80 to 100 new employees who are expected to be hired for the new contract.

The new facility is expected to be completed by mid-2008, with commercial production beginning in early in 2009.
