Gerresheimer is expanding its production area in Wackersdorf
publié le dimanche 31 janvier 2021
Gerresheimer Regensburg is increasing the capacity of its Small Batch Production in the Technical Competence Center (TCC) Wackersdorf. To this purpose, already existing production area has been converted into clean room space, and a new building with additional clean room and office space has been completed.
The company is reacting with the expansion of production space in keeping with the growing number of projects that require smaller numbers of units or for which a smaller number of complete products are already required prior to large batch production for development, approval, and industrialization. Gerresheimer had already invested a double-digit sum in the millions in the expansion of Small Batch Production in Wackersdorf in 2018. In the context of the plastic and glass competence of the company, 900m² of additional area was at that time created for the development and industrialization of glass products like syringes and carpules. A double-digit sum in the millions is once again being invested to adapt the capacity of Small Batch Production in the plastics segment to the growing number of projects. Produced here are, for example, patch pumps for administering medication, drug containers for injection without needles, point-of-care tests, infusion sets for X-ray contrast agents, syringes, and much more. Through the manufacture of medical devices, such as, for example, patch pumps with internally developed micro pumps, in Small Batch Production, Gerresheimer Regensburg opens up a new business area as an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM).
