Wasdell Packaging, a contract packaging service provider to the pharmaceutical, healthcare, veterinary and cosmetic industry, has taken a 76,000 sq ft storage and distribution unit to develop its Swindon facility in the UK.
The idea is to gain accreditations allowing the packing of controlled drugs.
Wasdell Packaging has also ordered new kits for the scanning and printing of 2D data matrixes and product serialization for the purpose.
The company had opened the doors to this £1.5m facility in August 2010 which was designed to double its capacity.
Wasdell’s MD Martin Tedham said the move to the new site facilitates the company’s ability to extend varieties of products it can handle and pack.
