(bilcaresolutions.com), a division of one of the world’s largest manufacturers of blister packaging solutions, announces an investment into a new laminator at its Wilmington, DE facility. The new investment marks a significant milestone in offering truly integrated solutions and supply chain advantages for the global pharmaceutical industry.

We see increased demand across our entire range of Bilcare Aclar laminates, from both, ethical and generic pharmaceutical companies,” says Kevin Stevens, president and managing director of Bilcare Research Inc. “The lamination line is a further execution of Bilcare’s strategic investment of €50 Million and is a natural progression to the industry-specific segregation project for our PPI production. The new capacity will be fully available before the end of 2016.”
