Vetter’s Rankweil Site Receives Permanent Manufacturer’s Authorization

Vetter, a global CDMO, has received the permanent Manufacturer’s Authorization for its clinical development site in Rankweil, Austria. Operational for nearly two years, the responsible national regulatory authority, the Austrian Agency for Health and Food Safety (AGES) again inspected the site for issuance of a permanent Manufacturer’s Authorization. Prior to commissioning the site, the authority had carried out an initial inspection at the end of 2021, which resulted in a temporary Manufacturer’s Authorization for the customary two years.
The AGES inspectors focused on the verification of the processes and the documentation in the production and quality control as well as on the systems for quality assurance. 
“We are very happy and proud of the result of this comprehensive inspection conducted by the AGES. Our state-of-the-art facility in Austria features structured and modern systems and processes and our staff members bring high expertise,” said Wolfgang Weikmann, Vetter’s Senior Vice President Quality. “This allows us to provide clinical trial materials of consistently high quality to our customers worldwide, helping to develop life-enhancing medication for patients in need.” 

Vetter Development Service Rankweil is the company’s European counterpart to its clinical manufacturing site near Chicago. “Our Austrian site allows us to further expand our capacity and service offering to our customer base in the crucial field of process development and clinical manufacturing of Phase I and II injectables,” said Dr. Claus Feussner, Vetter’s Senior Vice President of Development Service. “The site’s successful re-inspection and the receipt of the permanent Manufacturer’s Authorization is yet another important milestone in our strategic company development.”

Alternative Bridging Corporation (ABC) has made a host of adaptations to its website, which it says are aimed at helping brokers looking for specialist finance.

The new website includes an updated navigation bar, as well as quick links to what the lender says are its most popular products. These include the ‘alternative overdraft’, which allows borrowers to draw down funds as and when needed, as well as the ‘PartX’, a pre-approved part exchange facility which can help expedite sales and chain breaks on new developments.

Additional explainer videos have also been added, alongside step-by-step guidance around the application process.


ABC: ‘Making it easier for brokers

Rinal Rodrigues (pictured), head of marketing at Alternative Bridging Corporation, said the lender was determined to improve the service it offers to brokers and clients, and such service comes in different forms, including the information hosted on its website and within its communications.

She continued: “These are often the first touchpoints a broker may have with our business, so it’s vital that they are clear and accessible. The new enhancements to our website have been introduced to make it even easier for brokers to research and apply for the perfect specialist property finance for their clients.”
