The company will install one double-sided lacquering machine for foils and laminates, as well as one slitting machine operating in a new Class 8 cleanroom. The extra capacity is expected to come on-stream in early 2019.
“Our investments will meet growing demand for different blister foil specifications manufactured on focused production lines with the highest hygiene, quality and safety standards,” says Pierre-Henri Bruchon, exec vp-Pharma division.
Constantia Patz is located in Loipersbach, Lower Austria, and employs roughly 350 people. It produces blister foils and coldform for leading pharmaceutical companies worldwide. Constantia Patz already operates four certified cleanrooms for lacquering, laminating, slitting and printing of aluminum-based specifications.
