The rlc | packaging group subsidiary BSC Drukarnia Opakowan has completed expansion of its BSC Pharmacenter plant in Poznan, Poland.
In April 2013, the plant started producing folding boxes for the pharmaceutical industry in addition to labels and package inserts.
Capacity at the Pharmacenter has been doubled by investing around €4.3m for the construction of a new production facility and warehouse. At present, the plant now has more than 4,700m² of floor space.
In March 2013, two die cutters and two gluing machines were installed. Three presses will be relocated from the main plant in Poznan to the new facility.
According to the company, the Pharmacenter covers the complete packaging value chain for the pharmaceutical industry.
BSC CEO Janusz Schwark said, "The expansion of the packaging plant, which is the focus of our pharmaceutical industry activities, is part of the rlc strategy to achieve sustainable growth in Eastern Europe."
