Patriot Park Facility
Our Patriot Park facility is a state-of-the-art $150 million, 150,000 square-foot commercial manufacturing facility in Research Triangle Park (RTP), North Carolina.
Now fully operational, the site employs more than 200 people in production, supply chain, engineering, quality control, and quality assurance positions. That number is expected to quickly grow to 350, with the site’s intense focus on attracting and hiring high-performing employees.
KBI has helped to advance more than 300 molecules in more than 70 unique indications. By expanding our commercial manufacturing footprint with this facility, we are able to provide our partners with launch material and market supply.
In addition to providing cGMP biologics manufacturing for our co-investor, we will also use the new North Carolina facility as a commercialization option for our existing and future partners. The new turn-key, design-build construction will:
- Utilize our proven single-use platform and provide supply reliability with redundant equipment, automation, and full utility backup.
- Feature data collection systems enabling real-time process and product quality monitoring — including electronic batch records, electronic logbooks, paperless materials management, and Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) for quality control data management.
- Enable flexibility to accommodate a variety of mammalian-based biologics manufacturing processes.
- Include a ring corridor for suite access and a “science on display” viewing corridor to host person in plant (PIP).
