Hoffmann Neopac, a global provider of packaging for a broad array of industries and applications, officially has opened its first U.S. facility in Wilson, NC. Focusing on small-diameter tubes, the 37,000-square-foot plant boasts a high-speed tube line capable of producing some 80 million tubes annually, as well as space for several additional packaging lines. Hoffmann Neopac is a privately-owned company, headquartered in Thun, Switzerland.
At the grand opening, guided tours showcased the facility’s amenities, equipment and potential product output portfolio. Neopac customers and strategic partners attended a demonstration of the high-speed tube line — a configuration currently producing a 13.5mm version of the company’s Twist’n’use Tube, a small-volume, single-dose solution that, once the cap is twisted, is irrevocably opened.
The new facility positions Neopac to best serve the needs of the North American market in a twofold capacity: in the small tubes niche, especially in the pharma, cosmetics and animal health sectors, and also for emerging applications such as cannabis-based creams and liquids.
“The opening of the new manufacturing facility is a big success and further establishes our increasing presence in the North American marketplace,” said Mark Aegler, CEO of Hoffmann Neopac. “Between guided plant tours, live demonstrations and informative speeches, guests witnessed firsthand the leadership and innovation offered by the state-of-the art Wilson facility and its talented team.”
