Düsseldorf/Paris, January 28, 2020 – Gerresheimer has over 35 sites in Europe, the Americas, and Asia making specialty packaging from glass and plastic. Not long ago, in December 2019, the company opened two more plants in China and India to manufacture plastic primary packaging for pharmaceutical products. This will enable it to offer its customers in this major region the best possible supply service.

“We have production facilities in North and South America, China, India, and Europe,” explains Niels Düring, Global Executive Vice President Plastic Packaging. “This puts us in an ideal position to look after our customers in all key parts of the world and provide them with pharmaceutical packaging made from plastic.” The new Chinese plant in the city of Changzhou was officially opened on December 11, 2019, with its Indian counterpart in Kosamba following suit five days later.
