Ompi doubled the size of its manufacturing plant in Mexico, Cienega de Flores in Monterrey, in the state of Nuovo Leon. The Mexican plant, opened in 2008 to serve the needs of the American market, has doubled in size thanks to an investment of around €22 million, now measuring 12,000 square metres (indoor).
The doubling in size of the plant will allow an increase in production that conforms to the highest international pharmaceutical primary packaging quality standards. Income generated for the local economy through allied industries stands at 148 million pesos, around €9 million, creating 300 skilled worker positions, 98% of whom are Mexican. All of these figures are set to increase significantly as the plant at Monterrey is one of the most advanced facilities in the world in terms of technology used in the production of glass containers for pharmaceutical use (vials, ampoules and cartridges).
