Sanner of China: new production site in Kunshan to boost production capacity by 80 percent

Kunshan/China, August 5, 2021 – Sanner is set for further growth in the Asian markets. Following rapidly increasing customer demands in this region, the company is now planning to build a second production site in Kunshan. Once it takes up operation, a production output rise of around 80 percent is expected.

Following the rapid increase of customer orders in Asia, the current production site of Sanner Pharmaceutical & Medical Packaging Materials (Kunshan) Co., Ltd. (Sanner of China) is reaching the upper limits of its capacities. Hence, the company decided to build a second production site near to the existing one in Kunshan. The land transaction process is expected to be completed in August, and construction will start in September 2021. The new production site will be put into operation before the end of next year

New clean room production and additional development capacities

The new site will feature additional 3,000 square meters (approx. 32,300 square feet) of clean room production facilities. Moreover, the site will be equipped with a GMP warehouse, a mold assembly and maintenance workshop, all kinds of auxiliary equipment, as well as an office area. “Our new Kunshan site will meet the most demanding customer requirements thanks to advanced production equipment with a high degree of automation. This will secure our existing hightech status for the future,” says Ralf Tiemann, CEO Asia Pacific at Sanner
