Tekni-Plex, Inc., a globally-integrated company that develops and manufactures packaging materials and precision-crafted tubing solutions, will invest more than $9 million to upgrade and expand manufacturing infrastructure at its facility in Flemington, New Jersey.  The project will result in new capabilities and additional capacity to meet the company's growing customer demand.

The 18-month project will further enhance technology and increase capacity at the plant, which primarily produces multi-layer flexible packaging structures for a large range of heatseal and pressure-sensitive closure liners for pharmaceutical, food and beverage, cosmetic, automotive and other applications, as well as lidding foils for pharmaceutical blister packs, medical device packaging and pouch materials for the pharmaceutical industry.  The Flemington facility has a wide array of manufacturing capabilities, including extrusion and dry bond lamination, coating, slitting and printing.

"Upgrading our Flemington facility enhances our ability to meet the needs of our expanding customer base with high-quality, competitively-priced products and provides the foundation to introduce new and innovative products," says David Andrulonis, general manager and vice president of Tekni-Plex's Flexibles Division.
