Expanding Avecia’s Milford Facility

Leading oligonucleotide producer Nitto Avecia  has been working closely with A/Z Corporation to expand the company’s Milford, MA research and development facility.

A new addition to the existing facility at this location will provide a signficant boost to Avecia’s production capacity. The space is planned to accommodate the unit operations of synthesis, small and large chromatography, cleavage / deprotect, ultra-filtration (UF) / thin film evaporation (TFE), and freeze drying. The space will also house support functions of flammable storage, cold storage, process utilities and building mechanical and electrical.

The project also includes the addition of a two-story office expansion area. We were also engaged to support the second concurrent phase of the work, which will add further process systems in support of Avecia’s manufacturing operations.
