MUTTENZ, SWITZERLAND: Clariant said that its new healthcare packaging production facility in Cuddalore, Tamil Nadu, India is now operational. The new site is capable of producing Clariant's line of Sorb-it, Tri-Sorb, 2-in-1 Can, and Getter Can sorbent canisters for the growing Indian and Asia-Pacific pharmaceutical packaging markets.

The Cuddalore site is already certified ISO 9001, with ISO 14001, 18001, and 15378 certifications intended to be obtained by the end of the year, the latter of which will add Cuddalore to Clariant healthcare packaging's network of GMP-certified production facilities. Cuddalore is equipped with an ISO Class 8 clean room, and products produced at the site meet the relevant US FDA, USP and EU standards for use in pharmaceutical applications.

Not only does the new Cuddalore site expand Clariant's production capacity for desiccant canisters, it also adds to Clariant's ability to meet business continuity planning (BCP) requirements of global customers by producing identical products at multiple sites worldwide. Furthermore, Clariant continues to offer the Indian market a full range of controlled atmosphere packaging solutions from its global production sites, and it can help customers determine the ideal packaging configuration via its Stablus program.

"The new site has been validated as scheduled, and we look forward to serving customers with Clariant desiccants directly from Cuddalore. By manufacturing regionally, we will be able to provide improved supply and service to our significant customer base in India while further addressing important and emerging markets in Greater China, the rest of Asia and Australia," said Matthias Brommer, head – Clariant healthcare packaging business line.

"Clariant canisters are among the most widely used pharmaceutical desiccants by generic manufacturers in India. With the latest manufacturing equipment and product design, customers can expect the highest level of quality, and now with improved customer service," added Ketan Premani, head – healthcare packaging India.
