New BioVectra facility is under construction and hiring continues
by Gloria Welton
BioVectra is a contract manufacturing company that makes active pharmaceutical ingredients and drug products. The company has been in operation for about 50 years. There are three manufacturing facilities in Charlottetown and one in Windsor, Nova Scotia.
“We are happy to say that our new manufacturing facility is under construction,” says Trevor Morash, Human Resources Generalist.
The new 30,000-square-foot building will be able to produce 160 million doses of an mRNA vaccine and up to 70 million prepared and packaged fill finish doses for commercial distribution annually.
The company has more than 570 employees.
“We have job openings in all the departments that are required to support manufacturing, from finance to human resources, quality control, quality assurance, engineering, maintenance, and production technology,” says Trevor.
“We value all sorts of experience, training, and education. People may be intimidated by the bioscience aspect of the business, and some positions do require a science background, but it is not necessarily a requirement for all positions.
“If we are looking for someone with a specific skill or type of education, it can sometimes be a bit difficult to convince them to move to PEI, but generally speaking we are happy with the talent available on PEI.
“It is best to apply through the website, so that hiring managers and human resources people can see all the applications.”
