Germany's Schott begins building plant in Russia

This article was originally published in Scrip

Executive Summary

Schott Pharmaceutical Packaging has signed an agreement with the administration of the Nizhny Novgorod region in Russia. Under the agreement, the division of Germany’s Schott will begin building a $94 million factory in the region to produce glass packaging materials for pharmaceuticals, with a capacity of approximately 300 million units in the mid-term. The factory will be located on a 30-hectare site in the Bor district that the company chose earlier (Scrip Online, November 30th, 2007). The project will be implemented in three phases, the first of which is scheduled to be completed next April. At this stage the plant will employ approximately 150 people to make primary pharmaceutical packaging. The company hopes to strengthen its position in Russia and other ex-Soviet republics where it has been supplying vials and ampoules from a plant in Hungary for several years.
