Packaging solutions company Comar said Wednesday it will expand operations of its Buena facility by building a new off site location in Vineland.
Scheduled to be completed by March 2021, the Voorhees-headquartered health care plastic packaging, device and component supplier said the 159,000-square-foot Vineland facility will be certified and compliant with the current Quality Management System, be Food and Drug Administration registered, and house injection molding and assembly and finishing machines.
It will also have the additional capacity to support long-term growth. Comar said the expansion will enable it to refresh its Buena facility and increase capacity to better serve customers.
The expansion effort will result in increasing warehouse and storage space, improve facility layout with more dedicated product cells to drive speed-to-market, and improve cGMP environment and quality lab.
Comar Buena Plant Manager Linda Kershner said: “In addition to better serving our customers by bringing additional production capacity, the expansion in southern New Jersey will create a better experience for our employees who are central to delighting our customers. I am extremely excited about both our current Buena and new Vineland facilities. The new Vineland location allows us to create a best-in-class GMP compliant work environment right from the start and at the same time gives us the opportunity to refresh and optimize our Buena site.”
Comar hosts nine manufacturing and distribution locations and employs a host of rigid plastic packaging technologies including injection molding, injection blow molding, injection stretch blow molding, and extrusion blow molding which are complemented by a full suite of value-added service offerings. Comar is majority owned by Morgan Stanley Capital Partners.
