Packaging solutions provider CSP Technologies is expanding its Auburn facility in Alabama, US to increase its manufacturing and warehousing capacity.
The new structure is being constructed adjacent to the company's existing headquarters.
The 110,000ft2 expansion, already underway, is expected to support the company’s growth in the sectors of healthcare and food safety.
CSP Technologies CEO John Belfance said: “CSP Technologies is looking forward to expanding our global manufacturing and warehousing capacity with great pride, as it allows us to further broaden our portfolio of innovative products and packaging solutions recent growth in probiotics, transdermal patches, and thermoformed trays.
“With six worldwide locations, and more than one billion products manufactured annually, we will have the capability to provide even more customers with the competitive edge CSP provides.”
Earlier this year, the company introduced a new thermoforming line that will help it to deliver antimicrobial packaging products for food safety.
CSP Technologies also bolstered manufacturing efficiency of its Neiderbronn-les-Bains plant in France with the addition of clean room manufacturing and a high cavitation stack cube molding with in-mold process capabilities.
The facilities in US and France will be ISO 13485:2016 certified for medical device manufacturing and assembly. The clean room installation enables CSP to have necessary infrastructure as it prepares to make dry powder inhalers and other medical devices in the near future.
In the last three years, the firm has enhanced its global in-house design, engineering, material science and project management capabilities.
CSP Technologies expects that the new infrastructure will increase global production volume by nearly 25% in the areas of plastic processing, including injection molding, thermoforming, and product assembly and filling.
