A predicted increase of complex molecule production and last-minute packaging requirements is behind Tjoapack’s latest investment in the Netherlands.

The contract packaging organisation (CPO) has added an eighth blistering line – fitted with late-stage customisation printing capabilities – to its facility in Etten-Leur, The Netherlands.

Postponement printing could help reduce repackaging waste, costs, and time-to-market said Tjoapack's director of corporate strategy Dexter Tjoa in a statement.

“We’ve started to explore this type of packaging with some of our customers already and as more complex molecules continue to enter the drug pipeline, demand for last-minute packaging is likely to increase.

“This investment will allow us to futureproof our lines for projected demands,” ​he said.

Tjoapack expects the blistering line to be operational in Q3 2018.

The expansion follows on from Tjoapack’s investment​ in its bottling capacity at the same facility last year. In December 2017, the CPO told us​ the expansion – which tripled its bottle-packing capacity – responded directly to increased demand.
