With the investment in new production and storage capacities at Müller + Müller’s Holzminden site, the company is sending a clear signal about its strategic orientation in an important growth market.

 

Florian Müller-Stauch, Managing Director of Müller + Müller, is pleased with the decision for this forward-looking project: "Construction of the new production hall and the expansion of the storage areas is scheduled to begin this year. The investment is intended to respond to the development in the market for pharmaceutical packaging and create up to 50 additional production jobs in the long term".

 

The investment includes up to 14 new production lines at the highest technical level as well as a corresponding clean room.
