Healthcare industry in Europe benefits from scale of Amcor’s short run print services
Amcor, a global leader in the packaging industry, is investing in another state-of-the-art UV Flexo printing press in Alzira, Spain. As part of a broader investment programme, the expansion complements Alzira’s existing rotogravure and digital presses, and enhances Amcor’s ability to respond to customer demand for blister foils and sachet laminates on the Iberian Peninsula.
This follows the recent announcement of plans for new presses for Amcor plants in Kreuzlingen, Switzerland, and Cramlington, UK. Together the three investments serve the needs of the healthcare markets in the DACH region (Germany, Switzerland, Austria), the UK and Ireland, and the Iberian peninsula, respectively.
Paul Vega, vice president of Amcor’s Pharmaceutical and Medical division in Europe, said the investments will do more than simply expand capacity.
“Accelerating our investment in technology and high-value services makes us even better able to partner with our customers,” said Mr. Vega. “Not only are we present in close proximity to our key customers, we’re also focused on sources of real customer value: flexibility, speed and total cost.”
“We are serving pharmaceutical blister foil and sachet laminate applications with our network of rotogravure, Flexographic and UV-Flexo presses and our continued investment in digital printing positions Amcor to respond to increasing demand for short- to medium-run packaging,” he said.
