KEDPLASMA, a Kedrion Biopharma company and a leader in the US in the collection of high-quality plasma, is proud to announce a comprehensive remodeling initiative aimed at enhancing the experience of its donors and raising the standard of excellence in its collection centers. Plasma collected by KEDPLASMA is used by Kedrion Biopharma to treat patients with rare and serious conditions.
In 2022, Kedrion Biopharma and UK-based Bio Products Laboratory joined forces, adding BPL’s 29 plasma collection centers to the ones operated by KEDPLASMA. As a result, the company will temporarily close several of its BPL-branded locations for remodeling and facility enhancement.
“We are thrilled to invest in these upgrades, which mark a significant milestone in our ongoing efforts to deliver unparalleled donor experiences,” said Federico Latini, Chief Executive Officer of KEDPLASMA. “Donors are at the heart of everything we do, and we believe these renovations will elevate their enjoyment and satisfaction when interacting with us.”
Stough Development Corporation will partner with KEDPLASMA on the project. “The remodeling projects will involve significant upgrades to the interior and exterior of the facilities, including modernized aesthetics, improved accessibility, and state-of-the-art amenities while consolidating all centers under the KEDPLASMA brand.” Said Scott Stough, CEO of Stough Development Corporation. “The goal is for donors to feel safe and comfortable during their donation.”
“As we embark on this exciting chapter, we thank our loyal donors, partners, and stakeholders for their ongoing support” said Ugo Di Francesco, Chief Executive Officer of Kedrion SpA. “Donors stand at the beginning of a bridge between patients and the treatments available for them on the other side. These treatments would not be available without them. We look forward to unveiling the transformed BPL Plasma centers to KEDPLASMA centers soon.”
KEDPLASMA donors affected by the closures should visit nearby operating locations during this time. KEDPLASMA will consistently update its website (https://www.kedplasma.us/) with the latest information regarding the remodeling progress and reopening dates.
