RICHMOND, VA. -- MeadWestvaco Corp. on Feb. 7 announced plans to invest $7.5 million in its pharmaceutical manufacturing center in Hemer, Germany. The center currently includes clean room injection molding and assembly.

The project is driven by growth in preservative-free technology products, according to the Richmond-based global packaging company.

The project, which is scheduled to be finished by the end of 2013, includes expanding clean room molding and assembly capacity and adding a new logistics system to control the flow of finished goods and components.

"This investment underlines MWV's position as an innovation leader in healthcare dispensing systems and our commitment to manufacturing high-quality products in the appropriate regulatory environment," said Sven-Uwe Höhm, vice president & general manager, medical plastics division, in a news release.

The center also includes R&D facilities with fluid dispensing, fluid atomization, design optimization and broad material knowledge, and project management support.
