Business Wire

RAVENSBURG, Germany -- March 28, 2013

Vetter, a leading contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO),
announced today that its new center for visual inspection and logistics passed
its first GMP inspection by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The
inspection was conducted March 11 through 14 to ensure the facility is in
compliance with good manufacturing practices. The facility was already granted
manufacturing approval and cGMP certification for Europa from the RP
Tuebingen, Germany in 2012.

The 18,000-square-meter facility, known as Ravensburg Vetter West (RVW), began
operations in April 2012. The site provides high-bay warehousing for cold
storage and room-temperature products, as well as visual inspection. Featuring
state-of-the-art technology, which helps adapted to the needs of the separate
supply and manufacturing processes, RVW also harnesses extensive use of
renewable energy sources, including photovoltaic and geothermal.

“We’re pleased with the outcome of Ravensburg Vetter West’s first FDA GMP
inspection,” said managing director Thomas Otto. “We at Vetter work diligently
to meet regulatory requirements. Maintaining high quality standards is a job
we take seriously to be a reliable and efficient partner for our customers.”
