Gerresheimer AG has added a new plant in Berlin, Ohio, with an ISO 8 clean room to produce pharmaceutical packaging.
The building is Gerresheimer's eighth location in the U.S. and is next to its prescription packaging production facility, a March 23 news release said.
"A major customer of the company has now audited the site for its orders," the release said.
The square plastic containers are injection blow molded with high density polyethylene and a closure made of polypropylene.
They are part of Düsseldorf, Germany-based Gerresheimer's Duma Twist-Off Q brand and have a 40-mililiter filling volume, child-resistant closure and desiccant for filling with medications.
"Many companies around the world produce bottles and closures from plastic," Niels Düring, global executive vice president of plastic packaging at Gerresheimer said in the release.
"This is because it is the only way Gerresheimer can guarantee and ensure the quality and purity of the container solution used to package medicines," is with clean room space, Düring said. "This is what Gerresheimer offers at each of its primary production sites for plastic packaging around the world.
"This project is a great example of successful knowledge sharing between the teams in the U.S. and Denmark," Düring added.
