CSP Technologies Inc., a supplier of packaging products for healthcare, food and nutrition and industrial applications, has completed a 100,000-square-foot expansion at its Auburn, AL, headquarters.

R&D equipment and provides a venue
for streamlined collaboration between engineers, R&D and production
The expansion includes a Material Science Lab, which, in addition to housing integrated R&D equipment, now hosts a venue for streamlined collaboration between engineers, R&D and production personnel, said the company in a press release. Other areas in the facility will be used for labeling and other secondary packaging processes.
The expansion is in response to recent growth in several sectors of CSP Technologies’ business, particularly pharmaceutical packaging and medical devices. The additional space comes on the heels of the addition of a thermoforming line dedicated to the production of pharmaceutical packaging as well as an upcoming portfolio of antimicrobial products for food safety.
Over the last three years, CSP Technologies has greatly increased its global in-house design, engineering, material science and project management capabilities, providing a “one stop shop” from concept to commercialization, said the company.
Currently, most of the new space is used for warehousing. As CSP’s primary manufacturing needs continue to expand, an increasing portion of the additional room will be converted to manufacturing space and dedicated to producing packaging solutions for medical devices and sensitive pharmaceutical products.
