Klӧckner Pentaplast completes major pharma capacity expansion in Cotia, Brazil

31 March 2020

Klöckner Pentaplast (kp) the market leader in pharmaceutical packaging films, has completed a significant expansion at its Cotia facility in Brazil. Along with a larger and more sustainable facility, the project gives kp additional coating capacity to better support the rapidly growing South American pharmaceutical market.

The state-of-the-art coating line has increased kp’s local South American coating capacity by over 30%, offering customers high quality, innovative films with shorter lead times. The added capacity arrives at the right time, as the pharmaceutical blister market continues to grow in PVdC coated products as a cost effective high-barrier packaging solution.

“We are excited about this latest project to better serve our customers in the region. The expansion demonstrates our commitment to delivering the best quality products and supports a growing demand for high-barrier protective packaging for pharmaceuticals,” said Tracey Peacock, president, Pharmaceutical, Health & Specialties.

The upgraded technology also supports kp’s operational excellence and sustainability goals by reducing the Cotia site’s carbon footprint and overall energy consumption. The Cotia expansion is the latest enhancement to kp’s global supply chain designed to meet customer’s demanding requirements with local manufacturing across four continents and 60 countries.
