Gerresheimer has had a strong foothold in India for some years through Triveni Polymers Pvt. Ltd. in Kundli. A second production site is now being opened in the city of Kosamba to help bolster production capacity to cope with the high demand for Triveni round containers.
“Today marks the start of a new chapter in the success story of Gerresheimer and Triveni. We acquired a majority stake in the company on December 18, 2012 and now, seven years later, we are opening a new production site to boost our capacity”: this is what Niels Düring, Global Executive Vice President at Gerresheimer Plastic Packaging, will be saying at the official opening of the new plant in Kosamba on December 16, 2019. He will add that, with the second site up and running and the warehouses available in Hyderabad, it will be possible to significantly reduce the time it takes to deliver products to customers, enhance supply performance, cover a wider area, and ensure business continuity.
His welcoming speech will follow a presentation of the plant by Jari Tevajarvi, Vice President Asia Plastic Packaging, and Plant Manager Prakash Dhameja. The ceremony is set to attract numerous guests from both India and abroad, including official representatives from the local region.
Production of Triveni round containers is due to begin in class-8 and class-9 clean rooms at the end of the year. At the same plant, Gerresheimer Pharmaceutical Packaging Mumbai Pvt. Ltd. will be making vials out of tubular glass for pharmaceutical and diagnostic applications, as well as ampoules. Next in the pipeline is a new production facility that is being built as a greenfield project on the same industrial park.
