Vetlab wins new business from MSD – June 2018

Vetlab has recently entered into an agreement to manufacture an additional 15 products from Merck Sharp and Dohme’s animal health portfolio.

The products, which are marketed under the Coopers brand, include products to treat blowfly and lice in cattle and sheep for the Australasian market.

In order to accommodate the new business, Vetlab is constructing five new clean rooms for manufacturing powder products and encapsulation. The company has also added another liquids manufacturing facility with a new 10,000L mixing vessel.

“Vetlab has enjoyed a productive relationship with MSD over the past 20 years and we look forward to continuing to work closely with the team at MSD to deliver these products,” says Peter Kearney, General Manager of Vetlab.
