Sanner plans expansion in Hungary

Published: 29-Aug-2018

The German company will upgrade its machinery park, opening up new capacity for product manufacture and creating more jobs

Sanner, based in Germany, will expand its manufacturing activities in Budapest, Hungary. By upgrading and optimising the machinery park, the company is opening up capacities for new products and additional jobs. The company manufacturers packaging and components for pharmaceutical, medtech, diagnostics and healthcare products.

In the past few months Sanner Hungária Kft has laid the technical foundations for the expansion, working to optimise the existing capacity.

Soon, further injection moulding capacities will be available for new products. Sanner also plans to manufacture the desiccant capsules AdCap at both sites in Bensheim, Germany and Budapest, Hungary.

Extending the automated, camera-based final inspection will add to an increased efficiency in quality management.

“All these steps strengthen the position of the Hungarian site within the Sanner group,” said Volker Pfitzenreiter, Head of Production Europe at Sanner.

Sanner Hungária Kft was established in 1995 and has become the second, equally qualified European manufacturing site of the Sanner group. The GMP-compliant, SAP-controlled production is certified according to ISO 9001, ISO 15378 and BRC. Each year, a production volume of roughly €5 million is realised at the site, two thirds of which is exported to other European countries.

“A positive error culture and actively involving the employees in the continuous optimization process is paramount,” Pfitzenreiter said.

“Only as a team can we achieve our growth goals and advance the location expansion in a positive working atmosphere. Due to the significant restructuring and optimization process, we are currently also looking for new colleagues, who want to become part of the Sanner team in Budapest.”
