Samsung Biologics is starting a new era of the second Bio Campus with the expansion of the fifth factory. The company aims to proactively respond to the increasing demand for contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO) of biopharmaceuticals while securing a global competitive edge in production capacity.

On the 17th, Samsung Biologics (CEO John Rim) announced that it has decided to expand the fifth factory at a board meeting.
