Relocation Delivers Substantially Increased Manufacturing Space, Vastly Improved Operating Efficiencies, and Measurable Cost Savings for Unencumbered Growth through Multi-Year Expansion Plans

CANTON, Mass., Feb. 15, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Pressure BioSciences, Inc. (OTCQB: PBIO) (“PBIO” or the “Company”), a leading innovator in high-pressure nanotechnology and a pioneer in the development of novel, broadly-enabling, pressure-based instruments and nanoemulsion products and services for the health & wellness, food & beverage, pharmaceutical, and other industries, today celebrated a significant milestone in its accelerating growth journey. The Company announced the consolidation of its Boston area operations, uniting all of its personnel into a single, cutting-edge facility designed to accommodate expanded R&D capabilities, advanced equipment development and production, formulation services, and contract manufacturing based on its patented Ultra Shear Technology (UltraShear™ or UST™) platform. The new building is currently being transformed into a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility.

Strategically located in the Boston suburb of Canton, MA, the new facility will provide PBIO with a larger, more efficient space to continue its groundbreaking work in high pressure nanotechnology platform development – and UltraShear technology in particular. The state-of-the-art facility is to be equipped with the latest modern utilities and amenities, and will house dedicated areas for R&D, equipment production, formulation services, and product manufacturing. This move, consolidating R&D with all other departments of the Company, aims to streamline and achieve new production efficiencies, reduce costs, and foster innovation within a collaborative and dynamic work environment.

Ken Micciche, PBIO’s Director of Business Development, commented: “We are very excited about the opportunities this consolidation and expansion presents. The move reinforces our commitment to accelerating development and production capabilities, delivering exceptional products and services, advancing the field of high-pressure nanotechnology, fostering collaborations with academic and industry partners, and supporting our expected explosive growth in the direct-to-consumer area, led by our newly acquired subsidiary company Uncle Bud’s Health & Wellness.”

Key Features of the New Facility:

Product Manufacturing Suites: PBIO is committed to meeting the increasing demand for its innovative nanoemulsion products, delivering breakthrough performance in fast and enhanced absorption of oil-soluble nutrients and therapeutics. The new facility will house several GMP-compliant contract manufacturing suites, equipped with the latest technology to ensure the efficient and precise production of high-quality products.

Advanced R&D Laboratory: PBIO is investing in the development of a cutting-edge research and development laboratory, where its team of highly trained and experienced experts will continue to push the boundaries of high-pressure nanotechnology. The laboratory will focus on developing groundbreaking solutions in nanoemulsions and other products for use in nutraceuticals, cosmeceuticals, pharmaceuticals, bioprocess, and other areas.

State-of-the-Art Equipment Manufacturing: The facility features a dedicated space for the manufacturing of advanced equipment and components incorporating state-of-the-art materials and designs used in the production of nanoemulsions and other products. This will enable PBIO to expand production capacity in UltraShear equipment installations, while maintaining stringent quality control and ensuring the total reliability of its products.

Formulation Services: With a focus on providing comprehensive solutions, PBIO currently offers limited formulation services to its UltraShear clients. With the Canton site’s expanded space and equipment, the Company’s Formulation Services are expected to expand and grow significantly, as it collaborates closely with customers to develop customized formulations tailored to their specific needs and requirements, spanning a diversity of major market applications from nutraceuticals to cosmeceuticals/skincare, pharmaceuticals, food & beverages, and natural, organic agrochemicals.

Demo Laboratory: A dedicated Demo Laboratory will showcase the Company’s cutting-edge UltraShear technology platform, allowing stakeholders to witness PBIO’s unique and far-reaching capabilities firsthand.

John Hollister, PBIO’s Director of Sales and Marketing, added: “Unlike our previous site, the new facility provides the needed environment for us to accomplish our aggressive commercial goals over the next few years. Our new facility – with its significantly increased manufacturing space – gives us the ability to expand manufacturing capabilities to meet the already increasing demand for our products. Our growth is no longer encumbered by our facilities.”
