New injection moulding and injection blow moulding clean rooms

The Gerresheimer Group is one of the market leaders for plastic pharmaceutical packaging in Brazil. The three Brazilian production facilities in the Sao Paolo region collectively manufacture several hundreds of millions of plastic containers and closures for diverse health and wellbeing-related applications every year. In 2015, Gerresheimer modernized the clean rooms at its Brazilian plants to achieve sustainable improvements in production quality.

The injection moulding clean room optimization project at Butanta began back in July 2015. As soon as it was finished, the next project to modernize the injection blow moulding clean room at the Butanta plant commenced.

“Optimizing our clean rooms has enabled us to achieve considerable improvements in production quality and we’re now setting new standards in the pharmaceutical packaging market. The entire plant is profiting from the project, and our employees now enjoy vastly improved working conditions,” said Jens Friis, Vice President Europe & Latin America at Gerresheimer Plastic Packaging.

The three Gerresheimer plants in Brazil have a total production area of 28,000 square meters. All products are packaged and labelled in a clean room environment before they go to the warehouse. Product inspections also take place in the clean room. A brand new air-conditioning system is additionally contributing to improved working conditions at the plant.

The plastic product portfolio includes dropper bottles for eye drops, spray bottles for nasal sprays, PE containers for tablets, plus a wide range of caps, closures and all kinds of accessories such as dosing caps, droppers, measuring cups, dosing syringes and applicators.

Gerresheimer also has a plant manufacturing insulin pens in Indaiatuba (also in the Sao Paulo region) in addition to the three pharmaceutical plastic packaging plants in Butanta, Embu and Cotia.
