Packaging giant Amcor has announced the opening of its dedicated healthcare packaging facility in Tuas, Singapore, as demand for healthcare packaging is rapidly increasing across the region.

Amcor’s new facility, which uses water-based printing technology with no solvent emissions, features cleanroom manufacturing environments, capability in three-, seven- and nine-layer co-extrusion blown film, and state-of-the-art flexographic printing.

It’s also ISO 13485 certified, ensuring that it can meet all of the industry’s regulatory criteria.

Amcor is building an innovation center for healthcare films in the Singapore facility as part of a global push to broaden the reach of its innovation network.  According to the company’s statement, the center will promote advances in co-extrusion blown film technology.

Scott Jackson, Amcor’s General Manager, Southeast Asia Healthcare, said Amcor would use its worldwide product platform, as well as the expanded innovation capabilities offered by this new center, to bring new technologies, innovations, and attractive products to customers in the region.

“Healthcare is one of the fastest growing industries in the region, and customers are looking for packaging suppliers that can improve their speed to the market,” Mr Jackson continued.

“Our new Singapore facility is a meaningful step towards expanding our product offerings and increasing our capacity to support customer growth, now and well into the future.”
