In the USA, the Chesapeake Corp is expanding its pharmaceutical packaging operation on Long Island, NY, and relocating from its current location in Lake Success to nearby Hicksville.
“Our business has grown substantially since we moved to Lake Success just three years ago, and this move will facilitate further growth,” says Robin Henfling, president of Chesapeake’s pharmaceutical packaging business in North America. “We’re only moving a few miles, but we will double the space available for manufacturing and for the administrative offices that serve all of our US pharmaceutical packaging operations.”
The pharmaceutical and healthcare packaging business supplies folding cartons, labels and leaflets to many of the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies through its network of 25 dedicated pharmaceutical packaging plants across Europe, the US and Asia, In addition to the Lake Success manufacturing operation and administrative offices, the North American operations also include plants in Raleigh and Lexington, NC.
“This expansion will substantially increase our capacity for pharmaceutical package leaflets in North America,” confirms Michael Cheetham, vp – pharmaceutical and healthcare packaging. “We will be installing a new sheet-fed press and large format folders in our new location prior to moving our existing Lake Success equipment. That will set the stage for a smooth transition into the new Hicksville plant.”
