Today PPC Flexible Packaging announced it has completed the first phase
of a greater than $2 million facilities and equipment investment aimed
at expanding and further upgrading production capacities for its
Precision CleanTM cleanroom packaging business. The company
purchased its Buffalo Grove based business as Fisher Container
Corporation in February 2017.
The comprehensive plan includes enlarging production infrastructure for
its ISO certified Class 4 and 7 cleanrooms, adding several new
pouch-making machines, upgrading testing equipment, and installation of
a new ERP system. In addition to the physical upgrades, the company has
added key roles to its team including production and quality associates
and additional product development engineering resources.
“We’re excited to announce this expansion, which will allow us to meet
growing demand with a wider selection of products,” said Brian Ivey, VP
Sales, Precision Clean Packaging. “These new capabilities will increase
our capacity and product offering to PPC’s valued customers and position
us well for the underlying growth we are experiencing in our healthcare
and critical environment packaging markets.”
The second phase of this project will include the installation of a new
state-of-the-art pouch machine in the third quarter of 2018.
