More than half will go into new buildings and large-scale renovations on existing buildings. Upon completion in 2013, the utilizable space will have increased from 30,000 m2 to 50,000m2. Planning on future expansion, Optima has also purchased a 3 hectare plot of land.



At the same time, manufacturing, administration and research & development will be updated with the latest technology. EUR 25 million has been earmarked in the years 2011/2012 primarily for production machinery, and IT, with additional funds for bringing new technologies to market.

Optima will profit from the synergies within the group.

 During a celebration, Hans Bühler, the managing partner, made reference to a current pharma project which takes advantage of synergies. "A EUR 15 million order, in which our competencies in sterile filling and pharmaceutical freeze drying are combined."
