Pharma Packaging Soon to Come from Russia
Manufacturing to begin in Bor in 2009
The premium quality market for ampoules and vials in Eastern Europe is currently growing at double-digit rates. To optimize service to customers based in the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) and to strengthen the company’s leading market position, SCHOTT Pharmaceutical Packaging decided to build a production facility in Bor, a city located near the fourth largest city in Russia, Nizhny Novgorod. The plant will begin operations with 150 employees and a capacity of 300 million ampoules and vials in 2009. It will become the second production site for SCHOTT in Russia, following the flat glass processor »schott Flat Glass Russia« that started up in the fall of 2007.
