Midlands Technical College (MTC) announces that The Ritedose Corporation (TRC) will be occupying a 150,000-square-foot facility on the MTC Enterprise Campus. TRC is the anchor tenant in the MTC Enterprise Campus, a 130-acre industrial park for new or existing industries that are looking for prime-development space and partnership with a technically-focused academic institution.

The facility will focus on packaging and distribution of a unique sterile processing technology known as Blow Fill Seal (BFS), where low-density polyethylene pellets are extruded and formed into plastic ampoules and precisely filled to the correct dosage in a continuous operation while maintaining a sterile environment. TRC is among the world’s largest BFS facilities in terms of capacity and currently serves multiple clients from clinical trials through full-scale commercialization.

“We welcome companies like Ritedose that desire a relationship with an academic institution and that will take full advantage of what the site has to offer,” said Chuck Whipple, executive director of the MTC Enterprise Campus. “Ritedose will be able to recruit MTC students to train and work in one of the most modern manufacturing environments in the state. It’s a win for the students, for the college, and for Ritedose.”

The MTC Enterprise Campus is situated adjacent to Interstates 77 and 20. It can accommodate office and industrial users in space ranging from five to 40 acres in a Zoned M-1 location with established utilities of water, sewer, natural gas, electricity, and telecommunications. The site also offers intimate access to resources designed to provide a valuable exchange of information, innovation, and workforce education.
