Javier López-Belmonte, vice president and financial director for the pharmaceutical company explained to Efe how they will be working with the US company using the messenger RNA technology. He considers that this technology will be the future of not only vaccines but also of the pharmaceutical industry too.
Speaking of the vaccination production he commented that it is “a great challenge” for the company. The manufacture of the vaccine is expected to generate new jobs as well. It is expected that new project will have a global impact for the company who are investing in technology in order to produce the vaccine’s active ingredient.
The project represents a growth opportunity for the business and is considered a “very relevant” initiative for both Granada and Madrid. It is expected that it will drive both direct and indirect employment too. This is extremely important in a year that has been heavily hit by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
The vice-president of the laboratories commented on the new facilities and explained that: “We are currently adapting our facilities to be in a position to start manufacturing the active ingredient in the third quarter of 2021.”
