A Message From Our CEO
” Globally there is a paradigm shift in the way people think about their health and wellbeing, not just conceptually, but in the products consumers choose to purchase. SpectrumX will have a part to play in nearly every aspect of this shift in society; from saving patients’ lives in hospitals, to providing consumers with innovative, safe and effective solutions for sanitisation and personal care. With the combination of our world renowned team, innovative developments and intellectual property, it is SpectrumX’s mission to be a globally leading HOCL health company, offering a better way to protect and improve people’s lives around the world. “
A key element of the business is that SpectrumX holds a manufacturing license for the various products, making us and Spectrum Antimicrobials the only two companies in the world with the technical know-how to produce the unique formulations.
We have worked with specialists in the facility and process design to identify significant process savings allowing the company to achieve a lower unit cost and compete on price point with traditional alcohol based sanitisers.
Manufacturing in the UK provides SpectrumX with supply chain and production efficiencies not currently available when shipping product from California.
To execute these licenses SpectrumX has a 10 year lease on a 16,000 sq ft manufacturing unit in Cheshire in the North West of England. This area has excellent road, air, sea and rail links making it easy for the distribution of our products to the UK and beyond and as such this facility serves as the production site for UK and EU distribution.
The fit out is being undertaken on a phased basis to align with our overall delivery strategy as follows:
Phase 1 – Non-Pharma manufacturing – completed Q4 2021
Phase 1A – Microbiology and manufacturing support infrastructure – completed Q2 2022
Phase 2 – pharmaceutical drug substance manufacturing – completed Q3 2022
