CSP Technologies is expanding its Auburn, Ala. manufacturing and warehousing capacity by 110,000 sq. ft. The expansion has already begun and is under construction.
The company said in a recent news release that it is expanding its facility because of the growing needs of the healthcare and food safety industries. The expansion follows a thermoforming line that was released earlier this year.
CSP Technologies’s thermoforming operations will be pivotal to its new portfolio of antimicrobial products for food safety, according to the company.
CSP Technologies has also added clean room manufacturing and high cavitation stack cube molding to its in-mold process capabilities at its Neiderbronn-les-Bains, France location to help with manufacturing efficiency. Both of the U.S. and France facilities are expected to be ISO 13485:2016 certified for medical device manufacturing and assembly. The installation of the cleanroom in its facility also allows the company to manufacture dry powder inhalers and other medical devices.
“CSP Technologies is looking forward to expanding our global manufacturing and warehousing capacity with great pride, as it allows us to further broaden our portfolio of innovative products and packaging solutions, particularly to address recent growth in probiotics,” said John Belfance, CEO of CSP Technologies. “With six worldwide locations and more than 1 billion products manufactured annually, we will have the capability to provide even more customers with the competitive edge CSP provides.”
The company’s new expansion is expected to increase its global production volume by as much as 25% in plastic processing like injection molding, thermoforming and product assembly and filling.
