Manchester firm is lead designer on £138 million needle factory

Manchester practice Fletcher Rae has been appointed lead design co-ordinator on a medical manufacturing factory in Nigeria.

The firm will manage 26 consultants working on the £138 million deal at Port Harcourt. The scheme is being backed by the World Health Organisation.

The new factory will produce one billion auto-disabled syringes – which cannot be used again after one use – as part of a drive to reduce the spread of HIV and other infectious diseases.
