Amcor unveils new healthcare packaging facility in Singapore to serve accelerating customer demands in Asia Pacific.
Amcor’s new opening of a greenfield packaging facility in Tuas, Singapore, is designed to meet and exceed healthcare-industry needs for quality and regulatory compliance, with the capacity for growth to support medical device manufacturers. The dedicated healthcare packaging facility will address a current and future market need, as demand for healthcare packaging is rapidly increasing across the region.
The new facility comprises cleanroom manufacturing environments, capability in three-, seven- and nine-layer co-extrusion blown film, and advanced flexographic printing. It is also fully certified to ISO 13485, to meet industry regulatory requirements.
“With the Asia Pacific healthcare packaging market expected to grow at a more than 8 percent through 2026*, Amcor is laying the foundation to support that growth with this advanced facility in the region,” said Amcor’s chief commercial officer, Peter Konieczny. “Our innovative and regional approach in this space, coupled with our commitment to sustainability, will ensure our continued industry leadership for customers of all sizes, as well as the environment.”
As part of a global initiative to expand the reach of Amcor’s innovation network, Amcor is establishing an innovation center for healthcare films in the Singapore facility to drive advancement in co-extrusion blown film technology. Amcor will leverage its global product platform and the strengthened innovation capabilities enabled by this new center to bring new technologies, innovations, and compelling products to market to serve customers in Asia Pacific.
“Healthcare is one of the fastest growing industries in the region, and customers are looking for packaging suppliers that can improve their speed to the market,” said Scott Jackson, Amcor’s General Manager, Southeast Asia Healthcare. “Our new Singapore facility is a meaningful step towards expanding our product offerings and increasing our capacity to support customer growth, now and well into the future.”
Amcor has pledged to have all of its packagings to be recyclable or reusable by 2025. The new facility in Singapore uses printing technology that is water-based with no solvent emissions. Its multilayer blown films can produce recycle-ready products and its multilayer film technology allows new product innovation with a lower carbon footprint.
