Delpharm’s Acquisition of Manufacturing Plant from Sandoz Canada

Miller Thomson and Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP advised Sandoz Canada on the deal. Delpharm was advised by its French general counsel as well as Gowling WLG as Canadian counsel.

Sandoz Canada announcedthe completion of the sale of its Boucherville, Quebec, manufacturing plant to Delpharm. This plant is the largest sterile injectable production facility in Canada and provides strategic and potentially lifesaving medicines to the Canadian and US healthcare systems, mostly hospitals.

While all Sandoz Canada injectable products will be manufactured by Delpharm with the same high-quality formulations as before, Sandoz Canada remains the owner of the marketing authorizations and intellectual property and will continue to have commercial responsibility for all its products. Delpharm intends to invest in the site and pursue business development opportunities to enable its growth.
