XBiotech Hosts Grand Opening for its New Commercial Manufacturing Facility

XBiotech hosted the Grand Opening of its new Commercial Manufacturing Facility on Thursday, September 15th at the building’s location in Austin, Texas. The event included a ribbon-cutting ceremony, tours of the facility as well as talks by John Simard (XBiotech President & CEO) and Kelly Thornburg (XBiotech Senior Vice President of Operations).

The nearly 40,000 square foot facility is on XBiotech’s own 48-acre location just 15 minutes from the Texas capital in Austin. The building will provide a significant increase in the company’s manufacturing and quality operations in anticipation of commercialization of the Company’s product pipeline. The new facility will increase about ten-fold the Company’s current production capacity. Completion of this building is the first phase in the Company’s plan to develop the 48-acre property to house additional production facilities, laboratories and administrative operations, creating a headquarter campus as the center of its global operations.
