Sanner expands its activity in Asia

Sanner expands its activity in Asia
Company enlarges plant in China and opens new sales office in Indonesia.

Sanner GmbH, a manufacturer of plastic packaging components for pharmaceutical, medical and healthcare products, is strengthening its presence in Asia.

Along with expanding its plant in Kunshan, China, the packaging specialist opened a new sales office in Indonesia in October. Sanner is now in a position to better serve its growing customer base in Asia. Production at all Sanner plants worldwide is based on the company's "Made in Germany" principle.

With nearly 100 employees at its plant in Kunshan, China, the packaging specialist manufactures standard products, including tubes and desiccant closures and develops custom packaging solutions. Sanner China supplies packaging to leading pharmaceutical and diagnostics industry manufacturers in Asia. "We are very satisfied with the development of Sanner China," explains Sanner CEO Holger Frank. "The plant site opened in 2000 has become an important unit within our corporate group. We see further growth potential in Asia."

Sanner opened a new production facility in September and now has the space it needs to expand in the Asian market. The extended production area and existing manufacturing unit are designed as clean room facilities. "The new building extension doubles our clean room production capacity and ensures controlled production in a carefully monitored environment," says Holger Frank.

Construction of the new production facility was completed within 12 months. Sanner has invested several million euros in the new building and production systems. The extension also resulted in a 20-percent increase in the number of employees at the site. "Our ultra-modern, state-of-the-art production facility meets the highest hygiene and quality standards," explains Holger Frank. Sanner operations in China are in line with increasing pharmaceutical packaging standards in the Asian market.

The demand for technically advanced packaging and custom designs is growing in emerging economies. "Sanner customers can always be assured that they are getting a top-quality product – regardless of whether it comes from production operations in Germany, Hungary or China. All of our manufacturing facilities operate according to our 'Made in Germany' principle" explains Holger Frank.

In order to provide better, faster services to customers in Asia, Sanner opened a new sales office in Jakarta, Indonesia in October. This office will primarily serve customers in Southeast Asia. The sales office in Shanghai, China will continue to serve other Asian regions.
