Halo were negotiating to take the manufacture of contraceptive products from an existing multinational. That company faced regulatory pressure on it's existing manufacturing plants. The products had been aquired from a number of sources and though made in a similar way used a variety of manufacturing equipment.
To support Halo's bid STC worked through the diverse manufacturing processes to devise a range of standardised manufacturing equipment that could be implemented with minimal re-registration work and designed a facility.
The new manufacturing facility was to be located in an existing building with limited headroom. The plant was designed on a modular basis so that it could be extended as further clients were drawn to use the capability. This suited the cash flow and limited the cost of the initial investment.
