Protinus, CSL Behring, Bern

To meet the high demand for immunoglobulin products, CSL Behring expanded its production capacities in Bern. The project, called Protinus, was realised at the Wankdorf site from 2018 to 2020. It includes the construction of a multi-storey building with two production lines. The new 7-storey building is connected to the existing logistics and service centre (GBZ). Both buildings were encased, providing additional office workplaces and a new facade. 

CSL Behring invested CHF 250 million in the construction project and created around 50 new jobs in the city of Bern. This production expansion enables an additional 90,000 patients per year to lead a normal life.
