Optima Expands Production Capacities to Meet Demand

The Optima Group is expanding production capacities in Germany to meet with high demand for packaging and filling solutions.

The Optima Group has announced its investment into expanded production capacities in Germany to meet with high demand for packaging and filling solutions. The company revealed the expansion details in a May 28, 2021 press release.

Among the plans are new state-of-the-art assembly areas for pharmaceutical filling and freeze-drying systems, which will be built in Mornhausen (Marburg district) and in Schwaebisch Hall, the company’s headquarters. Both locations will see capacity expansions to allow for further growth and improved ability to meet increased demand.

At Schwaebisch Hall, the company is building another Comprehensive Scientific Process Engineering (CSPE) center, which will be 25% larger than the current CSPE located at the site. The new center is expected to be completed toward the end of 2021 and will provide Optima customers with expedited processes from product development to market launch.

The expanded capacity at Mornshausen will see 11,000 ft2 of space being added to the multi-story assembly hall, within which freeze-drying systems are manufactured. “This investment will enable us to further increase our production and thus create the best conditions for further growth at the Gladenbach-Mornshausen site,” said Stephan Reuter, managing director, Optima Group, in the press release.
