Sartorius Starts up Operations at Expanded Site in Puerto Rico

Business Wire



Reading Time: 2 minutes
  • Investment of more than 100 million U.S. dollars
  • Area designed for future growth

GÖTTINGEN, Germany & YAUCO, Puerto Rico–(BUSINESS WIRE)–After investing more than 100 million U.S. dollars, Sartorius, a leading
international partner of biopharmaceutical research and the industry,
started up its expanded manufacturing operations in Yauco, Puerto Rico.
The U.S. market is primarily supplied from this site, given that
Sartorius has been growing strongly in this marketplace at above-average
rates over the past several years. “Operationally and strategically,
this expansion is an important investment for us. The considerably
higher production capacities created as a result now give us leeway to
deliver an even wider product array directly from the region to our
American customers and to implement our ambitious growth plans in the
Americas,” said Sartorius Executive Board Chairman and CEO Joachim
Kreuzburg to approximately 500 employees and guests at the opening
ceremony on Tuesday in Yauco.

The company substantially extended the plant in Puerto Rico within a
construction phase of around three years, more than doubling production
capacity of membrane filters and single-use bags for biopharmaceutical
manufacture. Moreover, substantial capacity was created for the first
time outside the company’s German headquarters in Göttingen for
manufacturing filter membrane.

The factory site of around 2 million square feet, or 190,000 square
meters, in southwestern Puerto Rico is designed for further long-term
growth: it enables Sartorius to at least double its manufacturing
capacities once more as needed. “Puerto Rico stands out as offering a
business-friendly environment and a favorable investment climate. Yet
what is even more important for us is that for more than 35 years, we
have had a team of capable and reliable staff in place, who ensure
excellent product quality and delivery deadline compliance,” emphasized

Since 1982, Sartorius has been manufacturing filters in Yauco and, since
2012, sterile single-use bags. Currently, more than 500 people work at
Sartorius in Yauco.

comforte AG Gives Apache Kafka a Big Data Security Boost

Data Centric Security Provider Announces Seamless Integration with
Apache Kafka

WIESBADEN, Germany & LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#Apache_Kafka–comforte AG, a leading provider of enterprise data security and digital
payments solutions, has announced new integration capabilities for
Apache Kafka with the latest release of its Enterprise Data Protection
Suite. Apache Kafka is a distributed data streaming platform that allows
users to collect and examine real-time data streams from a variety of
popular applications. These new capabilities enable organizations to
integrate data protection methods, like tokenization or
format-preserving encryption, into their Kafka environments.
Anonymization and pseudonymization can be applied to sensitive data on
the fly within Apache Kafka to help organizations protect information
and fulfil compliance regulations. The additional capabilities cater to
use cases unique to the Apache Kafka environment, especially Kafka
Connect and Kafka Streams. The release will be making its debut at
Whitehall Media’s Big
Data Analytics Conference
in London, the industry event showcasing
the latest Big Data Analytics innovations and insights for large

How the solution interacts with Kafka Connect
is a plug-in framework that connects Kafka with external
systems such as databases, key-value stores, search indices, and file
systems. The Confluent
provides out-of-the-box solutions for classic databases using
Kafka Connect, such as SQL, MongoDB, Oracle GoldenGate, SAP Hana, S3,
etc. These out-of-the-box connectors can be seamlessly integrated into
an existing environment with little to no changes to source code, which
keeps development costs to a minimum. While there are many useful
out-of-the-box Connectors available, they cannot easily be modified to
integrate third party APIs. Seamless integration is a key advantage of
the new comforte suite as it enables end-to-end data protection with
minimal development effort.

In addition, data can be secured in the Connectors before moving
downstream in the Apache Kafka environment so that it is protected
throughout its lifecycle. This is made possible by tokenization, which
maintains the referential integrity of the data, allowing it to move and
be processed throughout the Kafka environment, all while in a protected

How the solution interacts with Kafka Streams
is a client library for building applications and
microservices, where the input and output data are stored in Kafka
clusters. Java and Scala applications can be written on the client side
with support from Kafka’s server-side cluster technology. The comforte
solution provides a dedicated, transparent, and out-of-the-box Kafka
Stream integration module that makes implementation fast and easy.

“This new release for Apache Kafka is yet another positive chapter in
comforte AG’s strategic growth plan to ensure the highest standards of
data security are being met,” said Henning Horst at comforte AG. “The
amount of data being generated worldwide is enormous, making it highly
valuable to organizations today. Therefore, with the growing risk of
breaches along with new and stricter regulations all around the world,
sophisticated data protection is a necessity.”
