More than 50 new jobs will be created in the region
Rexam Healthcare, a subsidiary of UK packaging group Rexam, is to improve its manufacturing plant at Le Tréport, Seine Maritime, France, in a €20m expansion.
The plant has more than 50 years’ experience in assembly and injection moulding and specialises in drug delivery systems, including the recently introduced Advancia pump, the design and development of which was co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund in Normandy.
Along with other site improvements, Rexam Healthcare is expanding its manufacturing unit so that there will be a total workspace of 5200m2; a 3750m2 production building including a cleanroom of 2900m2; and 1500m2 housing the machine and mould maintenance workshops, metrology unit, laboratory and administrative premises.
More than 50 new jobs will be created, adding to the 200 people already working at the plant.
The cleanroom is due to open in November, with full inauguration of the site scheduled for early 2014.
