Spokane Facility Expansion
Investing in People and Technology to Double Our Capacity
On November 17, 2021 Jubilant HollisterStier broke ground for our $285m facility expansion project. Currently, we are scheduling line time on the first of our brand new lines and have begun construction on the second.
Phase 1: Line 3 Increases Sterile Fill Finish Capabilities
This 50k sq. ft. expansion is centered around a new high-speed commercial fill finish line, increasing our production by 55 million units per year. At 400 vials per minute, it’s equipped with full isolator technology and 100% weight-checking capabilities at production speeds. Additionally, we’ve added three compounding suites with capacity for up to 2000 L bulks and disposable, single-use compounding and filling technologies. The line is also outfitted with two new lyophilizers.
Phase 2: Line 4 and Additional Operational Space
The additional 160k sq. ft. phase of our expansion is currently in progress. This expansion adds a fourth line to our Spokane facility and mirrors the capabilities of Line 3. Along with the new line, we are also adding additional maintenance and validation areas, warehouse space, laboratories, incoming inspection areas, and a large employee services area.

JHS has already begun filling new roles to support this expansion and will continue to recruit additional talent.

COVID impacted the ability to acquire new or custom equipment in real time. JHS rapidly identified alternatives, such as previously owned equipment that could adapt and qualify for manufacturing, to successfully complete the project.
Finding the right contract manufacturing organization partner to help navigate this scale-up can greatly simplify the process, but vetting CMOs for their capacity, expertise, and capabilities can pose its own unique challenge.
