GE and engineering firm, M+W Group, announced that they will team up on a complete biomanufacturing plant development service to serve the growing global demand in the emerging markets. The partnership will provide a single point of contact for customers, primarily governments, including IP access, financing, plant start-up, construction, and staff training.
The partnership's goal is (to make money) to aid emerging nations in satisfying their unmet needs for the biological products that are predicted to have major positive health impacts. The regional focus of the partnership will highlight the Middle East, Central and Latin America, and SouthEast Asia. They will also sell to Big Pharma looking to upgrade vaccine manufacturing capabilities in emerging nations.
