Stevanato Group, an Italian packaging containers manufacturer, has commenced construction on a new facility in Piombino Dese, Italy.

The new 6,750m2 facility, which is an expansion of the firm’s corporate headquarters, is expected to help optimise its industrial presence.

Stevanato Group CEO Franco Moro said: “Further increasing our production capabilities here at home through this new space we expect to be able to bridge capacity demands while our exciting projects in the U.S. and China are underway.

“Importantly, this expansion is further validation of the hard work of our employees, the demand for our innovative products and the continued growth of our business, and we expect it to allow us to be well positioned to build on our current momentum and advance development initiatives that are expected to directly benefit all of our customers and stakeholders around the world.”

The new facility will comprise about 2,500m2 of area dedicated to boosting production of high-value offerings.

It will also host offices, analytical services site, and R&D space, in addition to featuring new glass syringe forming lines to grow EZ-fill solutions’ production.

Stevanato plans to install and validate new lines at the new site in the second quarter of 2022.

Industrial production is scheduled to start between the late second quarter and early third quarter of 2022.

The new building forms part of Stevanato Group’s 2020-2023 Industrial Plan, which aims to meet rising demand for premium products.

Stevanato recently commissioned two additional lines for the production of EZ-fill vials and syringes in Italy.

It plans to add two more lines to manufacture EZ-fill syringes and one line for Alba syringes in 2022.
The expansion plan will contribute to the company’s plan of tripling production of EZ-fill pre-fillable sterile syringes by 2023.

It also forms part of the firm’s strategy to improve production of EZ-fill sterile vials and cartridges 19x by 2023, compared to 2016.
