Devices Centre of Excellence (DCoE), Cambridge

The Devices Centre of Excellence (DCoE), based in the life science hub of Cambridge, specialises in the design and development of medicines 'delivery devices', such as auto-injectors or injector pens. The team work with a wide array of external partners to design the best possible devices for patients using Pfizer medicines.


Pfizer Global Supply, Havant

The Pfizer Global Supply site in Havant, Hampshire is home to highly sophisticated production lines. These provide state-of-the-art packaging of vaccines and specialist injectable products, often in highly secure refrigerated conditions, which are then distributed around the world.

Medicines arrive in their bulk form, either in a pre-filled syringe, pen or vial, and emerge packaged in numerous formats for distribution. Working with internal and external global partners Havant provide secure, validated air and road freight solutions that ensure products arrive in the country of destination in compliance with label requirements ready for patient and practitioner use.

These have ranged from a small container to transport cold chain medicines by four-wheel drive to remote mountainous locations, to large airline shippers that can carry many thousands of doses, reducing the overall cost of air freight. Designs are tested on-site using environmental chambers which can simulate the huge temperature ranges that a package might encounter during its journey.

In 2019 the site packed in excess of 68 million doses. For 2020, the site is anticipated to pack in excess of 20 million doses by October, when packaging operations will transfer to Pfizer Puurs, Belgium.


Hurley, Berkshire

Located in the countryside close to Maidenhead the Hurley site is home to around 100 employees. Hurley is an office-based site with global and regional teams representing vaccines research & development and customer services, marketing, quality operations, regulatory affairs, medical information and safety.

The teams at Hurley are dedicated to working with their Global colleagues to deliver Pfizer’s vision of working together to transform lives.
