Allergy Therapeutics announced its Worthing facilities were recently inspected by the Medical & Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) and has today (April 30th) received its Certificate of GMP Compliance.
Over the past seven years Allergy Therapeutic, the fully integrated specialty pharmaceutical company, has invested over £10 million in the upgrade of its injectibles’ facility.
Today, over 210,000 allergy vaccines and diagnostic tests are manufactured each year at this site, with over 95% of sales made overseas.

The facilities have significant capacity to further increase output and operating efficiencies.
Allergy Therapeutics employs around 200 people in Worthing and is proud of it trading heritage, spanning nearly 80 years.
