PCI Pharma Services Establishes Rockford, Illinois, Campus

PCI Pharma Services, a full service provider to global healthcare companies, will establish operations in Rockford, Illinois. The $50 million project is expected to create 250 jobs in the next two years.

The new 200,000-square-foot facility, the largest of the company’s 30 locations across the U.S., Europe, and Asia Pacific regions, will include multiformat machines for the assembly and packaging of vials, pre-filled syringes, auto-injectors, and pen-cartridge combinations. Operations are scheduled to begin in summer 2024.

“With this new facility, we will be able to serve all clients focused on injectable drug products including biologics with the equipment and capacity to make life-changing medicines,” said Gil Valadez, Senior Vice President, Commercial Packaging Technology, PCI Pharma Services said. “We want to help our clients by managing the technical aspects of drug manufacturing, engineering, and delivery, so they can focus on what’s most important: delivering quality products to meet patient needs. That’s what PCI is ultimately all about.”

PCI is a leading provider of integrated pharmaceutical development services to the global healthcare market. With facilities in North America and Europe, the company supports pharmaceutical and biotech companies.

“This is exactly what we’ve been working with Cord for years to position this for, something of this PCI order,” noted Karl Franzen, the city’s director of community and economic development. “We have a long relationship with PCI. We’ve always been supportive of their growth within the city.”
