INDIANAPOLIS (Oct. 15, 2020) – Indiana is one of the premier contract drug development and manufacturing centers in the United States. These pharmaceutical contract service providers support the growing outsourcing needs of both large pharmaceutical and smaller biotechnology companies. Nearly 40 contract research and manufacturing organizations employ more than 7,000 workers throughout the state. Companies like Covance Central Labs (Indianapolis), Catalent Biologics (Bloomington) and B2S Life Sciences (Franklin) provide pre-clinical testing, toxicology, product manufacturing and other support to pharmaceutical companies worldwide. Pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies would not be able to discover, develop and distribute their products without these important partners.
This week, INCOG BioPharma announced that they are forming a new biopharmaceutical manufacturing company in Fishers, Ind. Formed by an experienced management team, INCOG BioPharma will construct a new facility and partner with global biopharma companies to help them manufacture their products. INCOG BioPharma plans to hire more than 150 employees and will become another important company within Indiana’s life sciences ecosystem.
