CSP Technologies Opens Material Science Lab
CSP Technologies Inc. (csptechnologies.com) has completed a 100,000-sq. ft. facility expansion at its Auburn, Ala. headquarters. The expansion is highlighted by the company's first-ever onsite Material Science Lab – which, in addition to housing integrated R&D equipment, now hosts a venue for streamlined collaboration between engineers, R&D and production personnel. Other areas in the facility will be utilized for labeling and other secondary packaging processes.
The expansion is due to the recent growth in several sectors of CSP Technologies’ business, particularly pharmaceutical packaging and medical devices. The additional space comes on the heels of a new thermoforming line which, in addition to pharma packaging production, will be utilized for an upcoming portfolio of antimicrobial products for food safety.
Currently, most of the new space is utilized for warehousing. As CSP’s primary manufacturing needs continue to expand over time, an increasing portion of the additional room will be converted to manufacturing space and dedicated to producing packaging solutions for medical devices and sensitive pharmaceutical products.
