Lilly manufacturing sites worldwide are introducing a number of Next Generation technologies and Digital Capabilities that will allow them to become the predictive and adaptive “digital plants of the future”. With that Innovation in mind, Lilly is designing and building a new state of the art Parenteral, Device Assembly, and Packaging Facility located at the Research Triangle Park (RTP) in North Carolina.
