/PRNewswire/ --
Gerresheimer AG, one of the world's leading partners
of the pharma and healthcare industry, is extending its
production capacity for medical plastic systems at its
state-of-the-art Czech plant in Horsovsky Tyn. The
production area is being increased by an additional
3,500 m². Gerresheimer is investing around
EUR 18m
in
the project at Horsovsky Tyn and it will create around
200 additional jobs over the next two years.
"Global demand for simple and safe products for the precise dosage and
administration of medications such as asthma inhalers and insulin pens is
increasing all the time. Our Plastic Systems Division is one of the world leaders
in this field. The scope and volume of our project work has increased
considerably over the last six months. That's why we decided to make another
significant extension to our Czech plant. We will be investing in additional
production capacity, the optimization of our production and logistics operations
and reduce our energy consumption so that we can achieve further growth.
The Czech plant in Horsovsky Tyn is developing very positively," commented
Uwe Röhrhoff, CEO of Gerresheimer AG.
Inhalers, insulin pens, lancing devices and various diagnostic systems are
manufactured in Horsovsky Tyn. Back in 2011 Gerresheimer announced that it
would be doubling the Czech plant's production area and invest around
EUR
12m
. The construction work has already been concluded and work to install the
clean rooms and production machines is currently in full swing. Now a further
3,500 square meters of production area is to be added. The modern warehouse
for semi-finished products is being enlarged and equipped with clean room
technology and the tool service is being expanded. All these measures will
optimize the production, service and logistics processes in existing and future
production operations. At the same time the plant's energy consumption will be
optimized by the installation of an integrated compressed air energy system.
The plant extension will result in the workforce at Horsovsky Tyn being
increased from currently approximately 450 to around 650 employees.
Construction work will commence in 2012 and is scheduled to conclude in 2013.
Gerresheimer also announced at the end of 2011 substantial production
capacity extensions at the sister plant in Pfreimd/
Germany
involving an
investment of around
EUR 25m
. This construction project is currently in
progress.
