PCI updates packaging operations and bottling equipment at its Rockford site, in a multi-million dollar growth initiative to meet customer demand.

Construction at PCI’s Rockford, Illinois, site began in March 2018, to add additional suites to expand primary and secondary packaging operations to meet customer demand. 

The updated packaging operations at the site will be equipped with high-speed tablet filling, cartoning, in-line serialization and aggregation. The expansion will boost the bottling operation at the Rockford site by 100 million bottles per year.

PCI pharma services’ expansion at its Rockford location is the latest in a series of investments across its global network. The string of investments are part of PCI’s initiative in overall capacity expansion. Multiple facilities saw an increase in facility size, cold chain and ultra-cold storage extension, installations of additional packaging lines and serialization solutions as part of this initiative.

Angella Sutthiwan, VP and general manager of PCI’s Rockford location, said in a statement, “This multi-million dollar investment demonstrates our commitment to providing both operational flexibility and expansive capacity in meeting those demands in order to bring life-saving medicines to patients around the world.”

The company’s commercial packaging site in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, recently announced a $20m investment in its capacity and packaging capability.
