Medical packaging specialist Steripack has expanded its production site in Klang, Malaysia. The company says that the aim of the newly built CGMP-compliant Grade D facility is to ensure that the group can offer world-class blister packaging services to regional customers.
In a press release, Managing Director of Steripack in Malaysia, John Ward, explains: “The days of air freighting finished products all over the world are starting to end. The ability to offer state-of-the-art packing facilities in Asia is a major attraction for our customers.”
Pharmaceutical products currently account for 50% of exports from Steripack’s Malaysia plant. “We have plans to expand our pharmaceutical packaging service offerings in 2013 to allow for bulk bottle filling, powder filling and liquid filling, all within a CGMP environment,” Ward adds. “This extra facility will be fully operational by January 2014.”
Since its inception 19 years ago, the group has established manufacturing facilities in Ireland, Poland, Malaysia and the United States.
