More than a dozen Neopac customers and some 30 community VIPs, Chamber of Commerce members and strategic partners attended a demonstration of the high-speed tube line
Hoffmann Neopac officially opened its first US facility on 16 May with a ceremony that included tours, demonstrations and remarks from senior executives. Focusing primarily on small-diameter tubes, the 37,000-square-foot plant in Wilson, NC boasts a high-speed tube line capable of producing some 80 million tubes annually, as well as floorspace for several additional packaging lines to come.
At the grand opening, guided tours showcased the facility's amenities, equipment and potential product output portfolio. More than a dozen Neopac customers and some 30 community VIPs, Chamber of Commerce members and strategic partners attended a demonstration of the high-speed tube line – a configuration currently producing a 13.5mm version of the company’s Twist'n'use Tube, a small-volume single-dose solution that, once the cap is twisted, is irrevocably opened.
The new facility positions Neopac to best serve the needs of the North American market in a twofold capacity: in the small tubes niche, especially in the pharma, cosmetics and animal health sectors, and also for emerging applications such as cannabis-based creams and liquids.
