PPC Flexible Packaging has announced completion of Phase 1 of its $2 million investment to upgrade production capabilities for its Precision Clean cleanroom packaging business at its Buffalo Grove, Illinois, facility.

The comprehensive plan includes enlarging production infrastructure for its ISO certified Class 4 and 7 cleanrooms, adding several new pouch-making machines, upgrading testing equipment and installation of a new ERP system. In addition to the physical upgrades, the company has added key roles to its team, including production and quality associates and additional product development engineering resources.

“We’re excited to announce this expansion, which will allow us to meet growing demand with a wider selection of products,” says Brian Ivey, VP sales, Precision Clean Packaging. “These new capabilities will increase our capacity and product offering to PPC’s valued customers and position us well for the underlying growth we are experiencing in our healthcare and critical environment packaging markets.”

The second phase of this project will include the installation of a new state-of-the-art pouch machine in the third quarter of 2018.
