BioConnection B.V. is an independent Contract Manufacturing Organization (CMO) located at the Pivot Park campus in Oss, The Netherlands. We support our clients – international (bio)pharmaceutical companies – by offering state of the art GMP manufacturing services and other related services (e.g. release testing, stability studies, QP release). Thereto we have a state of the art GMP facility for the automated fill & finish of sterile injectable drug products for liquid and lyophilized presentations, in vials and syringes.

Our facility has an excellent manufacturing and regulatory track record (including EMA and US FDA), and therefore we are able to manufacture clinical as well as commercial drug products for our clients. We bring value to our clients through our expertise, facility, focus, quality, strong program management, and most importantly through our customer orientation and ‘can do’ mentality. BioConnection is a rapidly growing company, currently expanding its manufacturing capacity with a new production line, which will be ready for GMP production in Q2 2021.

 

The Business Development (BD) team within BioConnection is responsible for acquiring new manufacturing projects from the market. BD builds up a strong relationship with our clients, thereby enabling projects to develop from the early clinical stages towards the late stages and finally commercialization.

We are very much looking forward to a colleague who has the knowledge, experience, attitude and drive to acquire new projects for her/his clients and contribute to our further growth.
