FACILITY HISTORYAn evolution of successful transformations
Our background>60 years of experience
Capua BioServices is located at the ancient "Via Appia" in Capua, a city in the province of Caserta, that belongs to the Campania region in south of Italy.
Construction of the site area dates back to the 1920's with activities in paper and pulp, under the ownership of Celdit. Thereafter the focus shifted to manufacturing for pharma and food industry.
In July 2015, Capua was spun-out of DSM/Patheon due to strategic drivers. This was the start of what nowadays is known as Capua BioServices.
