Oliver-Tolas Healthcare Packaging has announced the expansion of global operations, which spans three continents.
As part of the developments, the company acquired a facility in Feasterville, Pennsylvania, expanded the clean room manufacturing area in the Venray, Netherlands facility and launched manufacturing in Suzhou, China.
The newly acquired 50,000ft² facility is adjacent to the company’s existing Feasterville operation at Pennsylvania Boulevard, which manufactures pouches, roll stock, lids and zone-coated lids.
Oliver-Tolas president and CEO Jerry Bennish said the company has been deliberating expansion options for its Feasterville operation and has overcome space limitations.
"Utilization of the additional warehouse space has begun and plans are underway to construct an ISO 7 and an ISO 8 cleanroom totaling 5,000 square feet," Bennish added.
According to the company, the expansion will allow for improved product flow, added capacity and extra cleanroom space.
In order to support increasing demand for sterile-grade packaging, Oliver-Tolas plans to continue investment at the Feasterville operation with equipment purchases.
The expansion of the clean room manufacturing area in the Venray facility includes a 120m² ISO 8 certified cleanroom as well as a 1500m² warehouse.
Oliver-Tolas produces lids and pouches using both its Xhale and SealScience adhesive coated products at the Venray facility.
The newly added space will be used to prepare printed roll stock products and additional capacity for lid production.
The company is also bringing die-cut lid manufacturing to China to improve and localize service to existing customers in the region and support demand from medical device and pharmaceutical manufacturers moving into the country.
