Press release from the issuing company

Buffalo Grove, Illinois – Today PPC Flexible Packaging announced it has completed the first phase of a greater than $2 million facilities and equipment investment aimed at expanding and further upgrading production capacities for its Precision CleanTM cleanroom packaging business. The company purchased its Buffalo Grove based business as Fisher Container Corporation in February 2017.

The comprehensive plan includes enlarging production infrastructure for its ISO certified Class 4 and 7 cleanrooms, adding several new pouch-making machines, upgrading testing equipment, and installation of a new ERP system. In addition to the physical upgrades, the company has added key roles to its team including production and quality associates and additional product development engineering resources.

“We’re excited to announce this expansion, which will allow us to meet growing demand with a wider selection of products,” said Brian Ivey, VP Sales, Precision Clean Packaging. “These new capabilities will increase our capacity and product offering to PPC’s valued customers and position us well for the underlying growth we are experiencing in our healthcare and critical environment packaging markets.”

The second phase of this project will include the installation of a new state-of-the-art pouch machine in the third quarter of 2018.
