CSP Technologies, Inc. – focused on designing and producing packaging solutions that ensure product protection, enhance brand recognition and improve consumer experiences – has completed a 100,000-square-foot facility expansion at its Auburn, Alabama headquarters, and is currently transitioning several new and enhanced capabilities into the ample space.
To date, the expansion is highlighted by CSP Technologies’ first-ever onsite Material Science Lab – which, in addition to housing integrated R&D equipment, now hosts a venue for streamlined collaboration between engineers, R&D and production personnel. Other areas in the facility will be utilised for labelling and other secondary packaging processes.
The expansion was necessary due to the recent growth in several sectors of CSP Technologies’ business, particularly pharmaceutical packaging and medical devices. The additional space comes on the heels of a new thermoforming line which, in addition to pharma packaging production, will be utilised for an upcoming portfolio of antimicrobial products for food safety.
Over the last three years, CSP Technologies has greatly increased its global in-house design, engineering, material science and project management capabilities, providing a “one stop shop” from concept to commercialisation.
Currently, most of the new space is utilised for warehousing. As CSP’s primary manufacturing needs continue to expand over time, an increasing portion of the additional room will be converted to manufacturing space and dedicated to producing packaging solutions for medical devices and sensitive pharmaceutical products.
“The advancements at our new space allow CSP Technologies to expand our capabilities and continue to offer our clients the best service possible,” said John Belfance, CEO of CSP Technologies. “Enhancing the robustness of our onsite R&D activities is a particularly promising update. As the industry continues to evolve, we are confident that our facility will accommodate an ever-growing array of services while prioritising innovation, quality and customer satisfaction.”
