“The pharma markets in Europe are continually growing and the demand for barrier films is increasing,” said Johannes Giessler, director of sales and marketing of Perlen Packaging, in a news release, according to the site. “Thanks to the continuous investments in our technology and our GMP standard production facilities in Germany and Switzerland, we can ensure the continued availability of our high-quality products for the European pharmaceutical market."
Their new production site in China is expected to begin delivering its first products next spring. Currently, the company has three manufacturing plants – one each in Switzerland, Germany and the U.S.
