Capsugel To Invest $25 MM for Veg Capsules Mfg Expansion

Capsugel plans invest more than $25 million to increase production capacity and deliver further quality enhancements for its vegetarian capsules. The investment is enabling a combination of new production lines and technology upgrades at four manufacturing locations in Capsugel's global network: Greenwood, South Carolina; Puebla, Mexico; Colmar, France; and Sagamihara, Japan. These investments began in late 2014, and the majority of the funding is taking place in 2015.

Capsugel's vegetarian portfolio includes Vcaps, Vcaps Plus, DRcaps, and Plantcaps capsules, all of which are preservative-free, genetically modified-free (GMO) ingredient-free and gluten-free. The company is investing in all four products – with a particular emphasis on ramping up production of its Vcaps Plus vegetarian capsules.
