Constantia Flexibles to expand production capacity at Austrian pharma plant

Constantia Flexibles Group will invest a double-digit million euro amount in the expansion of production capacity at its manufacturing site for pharmaceutical packaging, Constantia Patz, in Austria.

The company will install one double-sided lacquering machine for foils and laminates, as well as one slitting machine operating in a new class 8 cleanroom. The extra capacity is expected to come on stream early 2019.

“Our investments will meet growing demand for different blister foil specifications manufactured on focused production lines with the highest hygiene, quality and safety standards,” said Pierre-Henri Bruchon, Executive Vice President for the Pharma division.

Constantia Patz is located in Loipersbach, Lower Austria, and employs roughly 350 people at its plant. It produces blister foils and coldform for leading pharmaceutical companies worldwide. Constantia Patz already operates four certified cleanrooms for lacquering, laminating, slitting and printing of aluminum-based specifications.
