Packaging Technology Group chief operating officer Tom Lawlor said: “Sustainability is a top priority for most pharmaceutical companies, and we are proud to offer this unique, curbside recyclable solution.

“PTG is committed to developing packaging designed to improve and simplify shipping solutions for critical temperature-sensitive pharmaceuticals while meeting corporate sustainability goals.”

Headquartered in Fall River, Massachusetts, PTG focuses in designing, engineering and manufacturing sustainable, thermal shipping and packaging solutions for the biopharmaceutical and life sciences sector.

The new facility will allow PTG to expand its product portfolio and create at least 40 new jobs in the Louisville area.
