AstraZeneca is seeking resources to boost its operations center in Speke, near Liverpool. The United Kingdom awaits a formal request from the British pharmaceutical company that seeks to expand the resources of its vaccine plant , as announced this Thursday by the Financial Times. Specifically, the same magazine pointed out that AstraZeneca could request up to one hundred million pounds sterling in support.
This operation follows the investment that AstraZeneca made in Ireland in September 2021, after considering that Great Britain’s tax rate was “discouraging.” In this direction, the company invested €360 million to launch a next-generation active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) manufacturing plant for small molecules near Dublin.
AstraZeneca’s plans could expand to other centres, including its Macclesfield manufacturing base. Chancellor Jeremy Hunt stated in November that he was setting aside £520m for future health emergencies, as well as ensuring that life sciences was one of five key sectors for the British economy.

In December 2023, the company reached an agreement to acquire the entire share capital of the Chinese start-up Gracell Biotechnologies for a price that could reach $1.2 billion. AstraZeneca’s executive vice president of oncology R&D, Susan Galbraith, said that “the acquisition of Gracell will complement the company’s existing capabilities and previous investments in cell therapy.”
In Spain, the British pharmaceutical company announced yesterday that its new European hub will be located in the Estel building in Barcelona . The project expects, beyond hiring a thousand people, an investment of eight hundred million euros in five years. The arrival of the hub to the Catalan capital, scheduled for 2025, has as its main objective research in oncology treatments, rare diseases, vaccines and immunotherapies, among others.
The Anglo-Saxon pharmaceutical company also appointed Laura Colón as the company’s new oncology director in Spain in mid-December. AstraZeneca is a British biopharmaceutical company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of prescription medicines. The company was founded in 1999 as a result of the merger of the Swedish laboratory Astra AB and the British pharmaceutical company Zeneca Group.
