Pharmaceutical tubing tank for Mainz site
Schott is to build a second melting tank for pharmaceutical glass tubing at its main plant in Mainz, Germany costing €40 million.
The production facility is scheduled to go into operation in mid-2022 and will provide 100 additional jobs, 50 of which will be directly at Schott.
The pharmaceutical glass production in Mainz is part of a global production network of the Tubing Business Unit, which also includes the Mitterteich site in Germany, as well as factories in Brazil, India and China. Schott has already significantly expanded its production capacities for pharmaceutical tubing in Asia in the autumn of 2020, with the commissioning of another tank in India and a completely new plant in China.
"We decided in favour of the Mainz site in order to further strengthen our production base for pharmaceutical glass tubing in Germany and Europe” explained Dr Frank Heinricht, Chairman of the Board of Management of Schott AG.
