COSTA MESA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Pyramid Labs, Inc. (“Pyramid” or the “Company”), a leader in drug product contract development and manufacturing with expertise in proteins, oligos, and peptides, announced today the appointment of Dirk Lange as Chief Executive Officer.

“I am excited to lead Pyramid during this pivotal time in the Company’s growth trajectory and as the company is doubling its commercial fill-finish capacity,” noted Dirk Lange. “It’s a critical time for clients to secure their drug product supply chain and we are building on a 36-year track record defined by quality, reliability and innovation.

“We are seeing increased demand for our DP development and manufacturing services across biologics, small molecules and specifically novel modalities such as oligo nucleotides, where Pyramid offers differentiated capabilities and years of experience,” Lange added.

Mr. Gorgy founded Pyramid Labs in 1988 and scaled the Company into a leader in formulation development, lyophilization, aseptic fill-finish of biologics, and analytical services for the pharmaceutical and biotech industry. He has spearheaded Pyramid’s development of its best-in-class reputation for quality, technical expertise, and customer service throughout the past 36 years, and will continue to support the Company as its Chairman.
