Topco breaks ground on new U.S.-based laboratory
Topco has officially broken ground on the construction of a U.S.-based laboratory facility boasting 650 square meter and FDA 510(k) certification. This move will allow the manufacturer to further expand its catalog while expanding its private label capabilities, enabling more companies to depend on Topco for their lubricant, lotion, enhancement, over-the-counter (OTC) drug, and intimate cosmetics needs.
Topco has spent the last six months trying to reestablish a reputation for quality and affordable product development, and now the company boasts expanded in-house pharmaceutical-grade capabilities. This new facility will handle the flux of Topco-branded products – including Liquid Sex, Sex Tarts, Climax, Climax Elite, Climax Bursts, and Hot Stuff – with the capacity to develop new topicals and OTC drug products for private-label clients.
“Our new facility follows local and national regulatory direction and permits Topco to make processed foods, cosmetics, drugs, and devices in the state of California,” Topco COO Autumn O’Bryan said. “We also have retained FDA registration for the manufacture and distribution of medical devices, a major move for our historic company that allows virtually limitless opportunities for expanding our R&D, product development, and private label departments. The team and I are incredibly excited for this and looking forward to discussing options with customers at the upcoming January trade shows.”
This new facility will double the size of its current Quality Control and Research and Development labs with a unique open floor plan that will allow for scaling of batch manufacturing, filling and packaging. In adherence to Ventura County regulations, Topco’s facility also will boast an upgraded sanitation system with features designed to improve and streamline the whole process.
“Where other companies resort to larger-scale outsourcing, Topco chose to push ahead and open windows of opportunity that ultimately help us and our customers grow in this competitive market,” Topco Account Manager and private label expert Omar Cantos said. “We are proud to make the first of many announcements to keep customers up to date on our new facility’s development and eventual ribbon-cutting ceremony.”
