Computer Designs makes thermoformed rigid packaging including trays, clamshells, and blisters, with manufacturing facilities in Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Arizona and Puerto Rico. Its primary customers are in the medical device and pharmaceutical industry in the U.S. and Latin America.
Under the Nelipak Healthcare Packaging name, the company will continue with its employees and suppliers as it further develops its thermoformed packaging products and services. Nelipak officials see growth opportunities in North America, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and the Caribbean.
Nelipak – a 60-year-old brand with a global presence in the healthcare thermoformed packaging industry – will boost the former Computer Designs with its design teams and modern cleanroom manufacturing at its global locations.
