Gerresheimer Extends Medical Devices Operations in the U.S.
Gerresheimer AG, Düsseldorf, Germany, is extending its production capacity for medical plastic systems at its plant in Peachtree City, Georgia/USA. The production area will be increased by an additional 5,600 m2 (60,000 square feet). Production of new medical devices will start right after completion of the infrastructural enlargements. Gerresheimer is investing double digit million Dollars in the project in Peachtree City, which will create around 120 additional jobs in the medium-term future.
Gerresheimer is taking advantage of Georgia’s internationally acclaimed workforce training program, Quick Start. The new jobs to be created in the medium term will include executive, administrative, supervisory and production positions.
The additional production area will significantly increase Gerresheimer’s Peachtree City plant’s production capacity. Two thirds of the additional production area will be ISO class 8 cleanroom. Gerresheimer established its first Peachtree City production facility in 1993 and expanded it in 2009 with the establishment of a Technical Competence Center (TCC). The plant in Peachtree City is part of Gerresheimer’s Medical Plastic Systems business unit.
