Coating Place has the most comprehensive and modern facilities dedicated to Wurster fluid bed coating for pharmaceutical contract manufacturing.
Coating Place was founded in 1976 as an approximately 3,000 ft2 facility located in Verona, Wisconsin. The facility began with the prototype equipment constructed by Dr. Wurster and the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF) and has since expanded to a modern 185,000 ft2 GMP facility with manufacturing capabilities. The Verona facility now boasts numerous Wurster fluid bed coating units, as well as a fully equipped analytical laboratory, tablet press and capsule filling stations, extrusion and spheronization processing, and many other capabilities. Coating Place is an approved FDA and EMA pharmaceutical manufacturer. In 2012, Coating Place expanded its manufacturing capabilities with the purchase of its 110,000 ft2 manufacturing facility located in Sauk City, Wisconsin. The site originally focused on specialty chemical manufacturing until 2019, when it was upgraded and became FDA-approved for food manufacturing.
With twenty proprietary, highly advanced Wurster fluid bed coating units, ranging in manufacturing sizes from research batches as small as 0.010 Kg to commercial batches as large as 800 Kg, Coating Place can handle almost any project in a variety of industries. Our research and development department utilizes four Wurster fluid bed coatings units; a model 400, model 600 and model 900 located at its headquarters in Verona and one model 400 unit located in Sauk City. When research is complete, linear scalability allows Coating Place to efficiently transfer a product to one of our model 1800, 3200 or 4600 commercial Wurster fluid bed coating units for commercial manufacturing. All Wurster fluid bed units are capable of handling aqueous or organic solvent-based coating systems through their ability to control process air humidity, providing consistent and reproducible processing year-round, while ensuring that each unit is equipped with the latest technology in emissions control. Our facilities are capable of manufacturing a wide variety of products with numerous processing requirements, while our 45+ years of experience make us an unmatched contract manufacturer.
