Satisfy Latin American Demand
New Gerresheimer Plant in Brazil
Gerresheimer AG, Düsseldorf, Germany, is further expanding its presence in the South American market. The new Anápolis plant has commenced production in the Brazilian state of Goiás in order to secure and support the continued strong growth.
The newly built plant will initially operate over 3200 square meters and will be equipped with 30 machines during the course of 2018. The plan is to extend it further to 20,000 square meters by 2021. Just like all the other Gerresheimer plants, the new one will be certified to ISO 9001 too. The requisite audit will be held in June.
In future, Gerresheimer Anápolis will produce the entire range of plastic containers from PP, PE, and PET, along with the corresponding closures and caps. The products will also be assembled and decorated in the plant providing customers with a complete concept solution.
Gerresheimer in Latin America
Gerresheimer has steadily expanded its position in Brazil over the years, also through strategic acquisitions. Ten years ago, Allplas Embalagens and in 2011 Védat Tampas Herméticas became part of the company, both manufacturers of pharmaceutical plastic packaging located in the Greater Sao Paulo area. There, the full range of pharmaceutical primary packaging made from plastic is available at the Butantã, Cotia and Embu plants.
In addition, the company also has another factorys in Argentina (Buenos Aires) and in Querétaro in Mexico.
