MN: PetVivo Holdings Moves Mfg Facility, Creates R&D Lab
17 Aug, 2018
PetVivo Holdings, Inc. (www.petvivo.com) an emerging biomedical device company, is pleased to announce the moving of its manufacturing facility and the creation of a research and development lab.
In an effort to expand manufacturing and create a research and development facility, PetVivo, Inc. moved from Elite Solutions in Rochester, Minnesota, to the home of CytoMedical Design Group LLC (cmdg) in St. Paul, Minnesota. The location has far better access for PetVivo employees and eliminates the costs of hotels and mileage which the company has been absorbing sending and supporting staff from Minneapolis for weeks at a time to work in Rochester.
“We estimate that our cost of manufacturing will be reduced substantially. It is also time to address our plan to continue improving our product and initiate our research and development plans. Assistance for both manufacturing and research will be available from staff members of the cmdg group. Cmdg has additional clean rooms and square footage for our use “commented Wes Hayne, CEO of PetVivo Holdings, Inc.
The move was performed in one week, coordinated with three different moving companies. Each company specializing in specific equipment, with different degrees of sensitivity. The move is now complete, and production is expected to resume within the next three weeks. The new surroundings and extra space will help in building the efficiencies of the manufacturing process.

The company’s product pipeline includes 17 animal and human therapeutics. A portfolio of 20 patents protects the company’s products, production processes and biomaterials.
