CPhI – festival of pharma: Gerresheimer is now also producing US type containers and caps in Europe

Düsseldorf, October 15, 2020. The demand for plastic containers and closures in US-type format for the European market is currently increasing at Gerresheimer. Gerresheimer will relocate the production of the containers and caps for Europe to the location in Haarby in Denmark so that it can be supplied in a time-saving and energy-saving manner.

“Sustainability has many facets for us and our customers. It's not just about what we produce, but also how and where. Creating better options for shorter delivery routes is an important point because it saves time, money and energy. For this reason, we are now producing our US type containers, which we have previously produced in India for the entire world market, for European needs in Europe," says Niels Düring, Global Executive Vice President at Gerresheimer Primary Plastic Packaging.
