Protinus Extension Project

An extension project to make a difference in Bern

Protinus: Two additional production lines of 16 tons of immunoglobulins per year.

To meet the high demands for our immunoglobulin products, CSL Behring is expanding its manufacturing capacities in Bern. The project with the name Protinus is being realised at the site in Wankdorf. It is a multi-storey building with two manufacturing lines, and it is connected to the Logistics- and Service-Center (GBZ). The two buildings will be encased, which creates additional offices and a new façade. 

CSL Behring invests 250 mio. Francs in the building project and creates approximately 50 new jobs in the city of Bern. This production expansion allows 90’000 additional patients to live life to the fullest – thanks to our life-saving immunoglobulins.
