Constantia Flexibles invests in pharmaceuticals

Constantia Flexibles Group has installed a four-colour Bobst UV flexo press at its Louvain site in Belgium that increases print capacity and caters for new product development in the pharmaceutical packaging sector.

Due to start full production in the second quarter of 2017, supporting customers with small- to medium-sized production runs, the press is also said to significantly lower solvent emissions.

Pierre-Henri Bruchon, executive vice president of the Pharma division, said: “We are delighted that this update in technology strengthens our sustainable outlook on doing business and signals the introduction of more UV presses for Louvain in the future.”

Constantia Louvain is part of the Pharma division’s satellite concept in Europe, using pre-material from larger plants to print and slit foils and laminates for customers located near to the plant.
