Ready for Growth
SCHOTT has strengthened its position in the growing North American pharmaceutical market by opening a production line for ready-to-fill syringe products at its U.S. site in Lebanon, Pennsylvania.
Each day, the 160 employees who work for SCHOTT in Lebanon, Pennsylvania, produce two million primary pharmaceutical packaging products. In the fall of 2009, the foundation was laid for continued growth. By opening a new production line for prefillable syringes, the site has not only expanded its existing capacities, but also its product portfolio that previously consisted of vials and cartridges. ”This production facility is now the first SCHOTT syringe manufacturing line located outside Europe. This clearly shows how important the American market is to us. Our local customers will now be able to benefit from greater security of supply and better service,” explained Ralf Bouffleur, Vice President of SCHOTT Pharmaceutical Packaging, on the occasion of the official opening that took place during a two-day symposium in October 2009.
”I offer my congratulations to SCHOTT on their success in Pennsylvania as well as their many accomplishments throughout the United States and abroad.”Tim Holden, Member of the 111 th U.S. House of Representatives, at the opening event
