Swiss-owned manufacturer of packaging for the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries Neopac is investing about $30.8 million to construct its first manufacturing site in the U.S. and a headquarters for its North American operations in Wilson, NC, a press release issued by North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said Monday.
Intended to boost production of the firm’s Polyfoil tube packaging, Neopac’s move is expected to create about 44 new jobs.
“Our new pharma-focused facility prepares us to better meet the current and future needs of our North American customers and, together with our facilities in Europe, Hungary, and India, allows us to be the world-wide solutions partner to all customers,” Neopac US’ Managing Director Douglas Voreis said in a statement.
A subsidiary of Swiss firm Hoffman Neopac AG, Neopac’s U.S. subsidiary was established in 2011 in Delaware. The company plans to build a new plant featuring a clean room and high-speed tube line for Polyfoil tubes that hold up to 8 ml of product.
Neopac offers tube packaging design and laboratory testing services, logistics capabilities, and other services.
