LOS ANGELES—Topco Sales officials announced today construction has begun on a state-of-the-art U.S.-based laboratory facility boasting 7,000 square feet and FDA 510(k) certification.
This new facility will allow the manufacturer to further expand its catalog while also expanding its thriving private label capabilities, enabling more companies to depend on Topco for their lubricant, lotion, enhancement, over-the-counter (OTC) drug, and intimate cosmetics needs.
“Our new facility follows local and national regulatory direction and permits Topco to make processed foods, cosmetics, drugs, and devices in the state of California,” Topco COO Autumn O’Bryan said. “We also have retained FDA registration for the manufacture and distribution of medical devices, a major move for our historic company that allows virtually limitless opportunities for expanding our R&D, product development, and private label departments. The team and I are incredibly excited for this and looking forward to discussing options with customers at the upcoming January trade shows.”
With demand for domestically produced, FDA-compliant intimate products at an all-time high, Topco’s new lab is perfectly timed to meet customers’ unique needs. A pillar and pioneer in adult manufacturing, Topco has spent the last six months successfully reestablishing a reputation for quality and affordable product development, and now the company boasts expanded in-house pharmaceutical-grade capabilities. This new facility will handle the flux of Topco-branded top-sellers—including Liquid Sex, Sex Tarts, Climax, Climax Elite, Climax Bursts, and Hot Stuff—with the capacity to develop new topicals and OTC drug products for private-label clients.
This new facility will double the size of its current Quality Control and Research and Development labs with a unique open floor plan that will allow for improved scaling of batch manufacturing, filling and packaging. In adherence to strict Ventura County regulations, Topco’s facility also will boast an upgraded sanitation system with features designed to improve and streamline the whole process.
“Where other companies resort to larger-scale outsourcing, Topco chose to push ahead and open windows of opportunity that ultimately help us and our customers grow in this competitive market,” Topco Account Manager and private label expert Omar Cantos said. “We are proud to make the first of many announcements to keep customers up to date on our new facility’s development and eventual ribbon-cutting ceremony.”
