Aspen launches general anaesthetic production line


Durban-headquartered and JSE-listed Aspen Pharmacare, will launch one of the largest general

anaesthetics facilities on the continent in the Eastern Cape city of Gqeberha today, reported Moneyweb (25 October 2021). Established through a R3.4-bn investment in the province, the new production line falls in line with government’s plans to push localisation.

In 2018 Aspen launched Africa’s first high containment facility in 2018, and in July 2021 became Johnson & Johnson’s contracted manufacturer of its Covid-19 vaccine in SA.
