Eyenovia Expands Its US Manufacturing Capabilities
Eyenovia is stepping up the capabilities of its facilities and taking advantage of the thriving innovation culture and expertise in Reno, Nevada, and Redwood City, California
NEW YORK, June 6, 2023 (Newswire.com) - Eyenovia, Inc. (NASDAQ: EYEN), an ophthalmic technology company commercializing and developing the Optejet® device for use both in connection with its own mydriasis product and product candidates for presbyopia and pediatric progressive myopia as well as out-licensing for additional indications, is proud to announce the expansion of its U.S. manufacturing facilities in Redwood City, California, and Reno, Nevada.
The Bay Area is known for its thriving biotech industry, and in Reno, the medical device and technology sectors are booming in part due to having the largest industrial park in the world, which are some of the driving factors behind Eyenovia's expansion plans.
The Redwood City facility, which was announced operational last year, focuses primarily on Optejet® pharmaceutical manufacturing finishing operations, including drug loading, labeling, and packaging prior to distribution. The new Reno facility will focus on device manufacturing and boasts over 10,000 square feet of space to better serve the growing needs of the company.
"We are pleased to continue executing on our manufacturing strategy by expanding our capabilities in Redwood City and Reno," said Michael Rowe, CEO of Eyenovia. "Our new and upgraded facilities will allow us to continue the development of our existing and future products, better serving our licensees and partners and continuing to advance our mission of improving the delivery of topical ophthalmic therapies."
The U.S. culture of innovation, abundance of investment sources and access to capital markets also contribute to a thriving and innovative environment. According to a 2022 report on the US Biotech Industry:
The biotech industry employed 2.1 million employees across more than 127,000 U.S.-based organizations in 2021.
Despite the overall economy shedding 1.5% of its job base, the bioscience industry in the U.S. has increased employment by 11% since 2018.
The biotech industry's impact on the U.S. economy amounted to roughly $2.9 trillion in 2021.
In a rapidly evolving technological landscape, Eyenovia's expansion of its U.S. manufacturing facilities is a clear sign of the company's commitment to being a technology leader in the medical industry.
