DRAXIS Health Inc. (DRAX) has initiated construction of a 77,000-square-foot secondary packaging and warehousing facility in the Montreal area to help it meet its obligations under its contract to produce a broad portfolio of multiple non-sterile specialty semi-solid products for Johnson & Johnson (JNJ).

 

DRAXIS said it expects the new facility to be completed by mid-2008.

The new facility is being built by Montreal developer Broccolini Construction Inc. specifically to meet the needs of DRAXIS with respect to this major contract. It will be owned by Broccolini Group of Cos. and leased to DRAXIS under a seven-year agreement with options to renew.

 

Initially, DRAXIS plans to have about 50 employees at this second Montreal- area facility, part of the 80 to 100 employees that it will hire for this contract.

 

The contract to produce semi-solid specialty products calls for commercial production to start in 2009 and initially run for five years to the end of 2013.

 

DRAXIS, Mississauga, Ont., is a pharmaceutical company.
