Vetter To Expand Secondary Packaging CapacityBy
Vetter Pharma, a Ravensburg, Germany-headquartered contract development and manufacturing organization for aseptic filling and final packaging of injectables, plans to expand its secondary packaging capacities.
Vetter explained the need for expansion is a result of the company’s growth in new filling lines and new lyophilizers, which is driving the need for increased downstream secondary packaging capacity. The project, already underway, is occurring within the second floor of Vetter’s existing secondary packaging facility and will result in an increase of approximately 32,000 square feet of new packaging capacity.
The planned undertaking, which is expected to be completed over the next several years, will include new fully automated packaging lines, space for manual and semi-automated packaging processes, and assembly equipment for a variety of formats. The Vetter serialization and aggregation service will also be expanded. A syringe blister line will include safety-device assembly and equipment for packaging Japan quality.
