GW Pharmaceuticals (GW) and The Austin Company of UK Ltd (Austin) are pleased to be hosting a tour of the recently constructed manufacturing facility project in Sittingbourne.

The facility includes capabilities for Milling, Decarboxylation and Liquid Carbon Dioxide Extraction, including large scale manual handling systems within ATEX zones, all within areas designed to cleanroom standards. Austin worked closely in collaboration with GW Pharmaceuticals, providing a full EPCM services from the initial concept & preliminary design, through to detail design, engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning.

Austin are currently supporting GW Pharmaceutical with SAT ‘s and Commissioning. Subsequently this will follow through to Qualification and Process Validation which has commenced. This is an opportunity to share some of the learnings, challenges and successes on a complex small and large scale manufacturing project combined with a tour of the new facility.
