Gerresheimer has won two awards at its plant in Queretaro, Mexico.

The manufacturer received two awards in 2018, including ‘Manufacturing Methods and Tools’ and ‘Supply Chain Material Systems’.

Its Queretaro plant has received the highest number of cumulative awards. Gerresheimer aims to show customers its trust and commitment as a highly reliable supplier.

The confidence of the investors and board of directors allows Gerresheimer to receive appropriate investments to continue modernising its machinery and equipment as well as to continue to expand product lines and increase manufacturing capacity.

It is the only plant in the world to manufacture the largest range of packaging for the pharmaceutical industry including ampoules, vials, prefillable syringes, ready to fill vials, ultra-thin wall ampoules and dental and insulin cartridges. It has a production capacity of more than 1.7 billion units per year.

Investment plans for upcoming years will be focussed on modernisation and expansion for high value-added products. This is so the manufacturer will be able to supply incremental volumes for pre-fillable syringes and vials ready to fill in Easy to Fill (ETF) format, delivering pre-washed and sterile products.
