Gerresheimer builds a new production plant for plastic containers in India

Düsseldorf/Kosamba, January 06, 2021. With Triveni Polymers Pvt. Ltd. in Kundli, Gerresheimer has already been well positioned in India for many years. A second production plant in Kosamba (Gujarat) is to strengthen the production capacity for Triveni plastic containers, which are in strong demand worldwide. With a festive land worship ceremony in accordance with traditional Indian custom, the construction of a building measuring several thousand square meters a new plastic packaging production with clean-room environment began in December. Gerresheimer is thus concentrating its production of pharmaceutical primary packaging made of moulded glass, tubular glass and plastic at the Kosamba plant near Mumbai. Together with the Triveni plant in Kundli, the four highly specialized Indian plants belong to the Gerresheimer Group's worldwide production network.

"That we were able to achieve this goal in these difficult times of the pandemic is the result of good and intensive cooperation. The team had a vision and a goal in mind, which they achieved in an impressive way. We are all very proud and happy about this. We are particularly grateful to our colleagues from Gerresheimer Primary Packaging Glass who helped us to be able to hold the important traditional ceremony of land worship under appropriate hygienic safety precautions," says Managing Director Prakash Dhameja.

"The fact that we are working side by side with our glass production colleagues here in Kosamba is very beneficial and sustainable for our customers and once again proves Gerresheimer’s leading global role in Pharma Primary Packaging in terms of glass and plastic," says Jari Tevajarvi, Vice President Asia Plastic Packaging.

Since Gerresheimer acquired Primary Packaging Plastic Triveni Polymers Ltd. based in Kundli, India, eight years ago, the company has almost doubled its capacity. The new production building in Kosamba is designed to help meet the growing demand. The portfolio includes plastic containers for medicines in many formats and designs. The production of child-resistant closures is also particularly important.
