Tekni-Plex has announced a new lamination film production line for medical and pharmaceutical packaging. The facility will produce high barrier laminations to start, which will be used to make packaging blisters. The line will include various quality control upgrades, including high-speed manufacturing equipment and visions systems, all of which conform to cGMP and ISO standards.
It is set to begin production in mid-summer. Around the same time, Tekni-Plex will begin slowing down and eventually cease production at its Somerville, New Jersey plant.
“Our Somerville facility has been producing high-quality barrier laminations for nearly 40 years. After extensive analysis, we came to the conclusion that closing this facility and creating new, state-of-the-art production capability was the best decision for our customers and company,” said David Andrulonis, vice president and general manager of Tekni-Plex Films.
Located in Holland, Ohio, the new facility will neighbor Tekni-Plex’s Global Technology Center.
