The company’s subsidiary, MaSTherCell Global is a global contract development and manufacturing organization, or CDMO. Orgenesis highlighted that the fast-growing CDMO segment achieved $4 million in operating profits. "We are pleased to report strong growth, increased gross profit and solid gross margin improvement in fiscal 2018,” said Orgenesis CEO Vered Caplan in a statement. “Our CDMO segment, Masthercell Global generated $22.6 million in sales, and an operating profit of $4 million on a standalone basis. While we continue to grow Masthercell's backlog and customer base, one of our key challenges in fiscal 2018 was ramping up to meet the growing global demand.” Caplan said that to address “capacity constraints” the company recently opened a new 6,458 square feet production wing at its Belgium site to provide Masthercell with five “additional late-stage and commercial-ready clean rooms.” “In total, we have more than doubled our manufacturing capacity in 2018, which positions us for continued strong growth in 2019. In addition, we recently announced expansion plans into the US,” said Caplan. MaSTherCell Global Inc is building a new 30,000 square feet manufacturing facility in Houston. With the US expansion, the company, which develops advanced cell therapies, will now have manufacturing facilities in three continents spanning North America, Europe and Asia MaSTherCell is also backed by Great Point Partners LLC, a healthcare investment firm based in Greenwich, Connecticut. Shares of Orgenesis were little changed at $4.86. Contact Uttara Choudhury at Follow her on Twitter: @UttaraProactive
