Wohlsen Celebrates Ribbon Cutting for New Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Facility

Posted in: News on October 23, 2018

Wohlsen Construction Company and Dätwyler Sealing Solutions recently celebrated the ribbon cutting for their new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility. Dätwyler, a 100-year-old Swiss-based company, will produce rubber closures for pharmaceutical businesses, such as caps, stoppers, and syringes in their new $100 million facility in Middletown, Delaware. Dätwyler hopes to have the 193,000 – square-foot process facility and a 30,000 – square-foot office and lab fully operational by the end of the year with 120 employees.

The new facility contains custom process equipment that was developed and manufactured specifically for installation in the Middletown plant. The proprietary layout incorporates Good and Lean Manufacturing Practices to facilitate the effective production of Dätwyler’s high-quality specialty rubber closures. Located on the facility’s main floor are equipment, storage, and manufacturing spaces. Second-story mezzanines are suspended above, providing separate visitor and clean/technician corridors that overlook the process facility’s main floor. The north-west side of the building features the three-story office and laboratory to support the process facility.

Wohlsen served as the design-builder and teamed with Becker Morgan, Concord Engineering, and Genesis Engineering respectively for structural, MEP, and clean room design services. Through the team’s integrated project delivery approach, various value engineering elements were presented in a collaborative manner and integrated into the project as required to meet the project budget and schedule goals.
