Gerresheimer Increases Production Capacity in the Czech Republic
Gerresheimer AG, Düsseldorf, Germany, is extending its production capacity for medical plastic systems at its Czech plant in Horsovsky Tyn, Czech Republic. The production area is being increased by an additional 3,500 m². The company is investing around EUR 18 million in the project at Horsovsky Tyn and it will create around 200 additional jobs over the next two years.
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 12 million. 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. 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.
