G-CON Global Collaboration

10 April 2013


Howorth Air Technology is pleased to announce a global collaboration with G-CON Manufacturing.  The joint venture will provide a flexible pharmaceutical containment solution, ensuring a safe and clean environment for GMP therapeutics manufacturing.  The combination of Howorth’s advanced and long established expertise in engineering clean air and isolator technologies, and G-CON’s novel, mobile containment PODs, will allow customers to meet safety and regulatory needs without risking process productivity.

Howorth’s clean air engineering is a proven concept that allows for a controlled flow of air, enabling contaminates to be carried away for optimal containment.    G-CON’s PODs are self contained, autonomous cleanroom systems for biopharmaceutical processes.  They are scalable and repurposeable and can be used in multiproduct or individual patient scenarios.  This combination of world class containment control solutions and modular, flexible POD technology will provide the biopharmaceutical manufacturing industry with a key resolution that will meet or exceed relevant GMP global standards, while continuing to offer an innovative approach that reduces clients’ time to market.

Graham Hind, CEO of Howorth Air Technology Inc, Howorth’s USA business arm, says: “G-CON offers a market leading technology, product and service, and fundamental synergies with which Howorth is proud to be allied.  The flexibility of both companies will provide the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical markets with the best single source solutions, and absolute quality and service.  This is a very exciting era for Howorth, G-CON and our customers.”

Maik Jornitz, CEO of G-CON Manufacturing, says:  “We are very excited to partner with Howorth Air Technology, a leading containment and aseptic technologies provider.  The combination of G-CON’s cleanroom PODS and Howorth’s containment options meets current biopharmaceutical industry demands, especially with increasing potency of therapeutic drug products of individual patient therapies.”

Effective immediately, G-CON’s PODs are made available with Howorth as the preferred service provider in regard to containment products, aseptic solutions, and hospital solutions.
