RADNOR, Pa., Feb. 11, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Avantor, Inc. (NYSE: AVTR), a leading global provider of mission-critical products and services to customers in the life sciences, advanced technologies and applied materials industries has started construction on a distribution center which will help expedite access to essential production materials for biopharmaceutical manufacturers in Ireland. Expected to open later this year, the facility will significantly increase distribution capacity to meet the growing demand for production materials by Ireland's biopharma industry.

"Our new Dublin distribution center places essential content closer to our customers," said Sheri Lewis, Executive Vice President, Global Supply Chain Operations.
