Opening of Wilson, N.C. Facility Provides VIP Guests with Line Demos; Company Leadership in Attendance for Interviews and Speeches

Hoffmann Neopac, a global provider of high-quality packaging for a broad array of industries and applications, officially opened its first U.S. facility on Thursday, May 16 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.   

Speeches by key Neopac executives included an introduction from Mark Aegler, CEO of Hoffmann Neopac AG; a facility overview given by Douglas Voreis, Managing Director of Neopac U.S.; and a products and capabilities explanation led by Richard Misdom, Sales Manager Pharma NA at Neopac.

“The opening of the new manufacturing facility is a big success and further establishes our increasing presence in the North American marketplace,” said Mark Aegler, CEO of Hoffmann Neopac. “Between guided plant tours, live demonstrations and informative speeches, guests witnessed firsthand the leadership and innovation offered by the state-of-the art Wilson facility and its talented team.”
