Case Study: Leveraging our manufacturing capabilities to rapidly support the COVID-19 pandemic

The Problem

In response to the unprecedented demand for alcohol-based sanitisers during the public health emergency (COVID-19), the FDA released temporary guidance allowing certain entities that are not currently regulated by the FDA as drug manufacturers to prepare and distribute hand sanitiser products for public use.

The Solution

After carefully reviewing all of our Scapa Healthcare manufacturing sites, it was decided to leverage our current Windsor, Connecticut, facility’s infrastructure for handling alcohol products to temporarily support the production of alcohol-based hand sanitisers. Despite liquid product manufacturing not being Windor’s core competency, Scapa provides an uncompromising focus on quality and regulatory expertise across its operations. The site operations team was therefore able to rapidly register the site with the FDA and obtain the required regulatory licences to start production as quickly as possible.

The team was also able to leverage Scapa Healthcare’s global supply chain to expedite the purchasing of all necessary raw materials. The full operation was up and running in a matter of weeks.Scapa Healthcare continues to look for creative ways to leverage our capabilities to support our global healthcare partners with urgently needed medical products during this global healthcare crisis.
