Gerresheimer Asia plastic packaging vice-president Jari Tevajarvi said: “Due to the high demand in Asia, we have decided to build another plant in China in addition to the locations in Europe, India, and America.

“From this base, we can supply many of our customers in the Asia region and strongly support even better those customers who want to access the regulated US pharmaceutical market with their drugs packed into our products.”

The Changzhou facility will be used for the production of pharmaceutical containers with closures and dropper bottles with accessories. The product portfolio will include the Duma Twist-off container models and Triveni containers with an induction seal.

Containers will be available in the range of 30ml to 3,800ml.

“All containers will comply with the European Pharmacopoeia and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requirements.”

All containers will come with different closure options, desiccants and adsorbents.

Gerresheimer added that all containers will comply with the European Pharmacopoeia and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requirements.

Production is scheduled to begin in the second half of this year and will be carried out in a modern Class 7-classified cleanroom.
