SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- National Resilience, Inc. (Resilience), a technology-focused manufacturing company dedicated to broadening access to complex medicines, today announced that in conjunction with an equity investment in Resilience from Mubadala Investment Company PJSC (Mubadala), an Abu Dhabi sovereign investor, that the two parties have signed a deal intended to help secure the global biopharma supply chain and advance the United Arab Emirates’ (UAE) life sciences ecosystem through a biopharma manufacturing collaboration – which would result in the construction of a new, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
Under the agreement, Mubadala will establish the new manufacturing facility, which will be operated by Resilience, to manufacture certain biopharmaceutical-related products in the UAE.
