ALPLA is expanding its presence in the global market for pharmaceutical packaging by establishing a joint venture with Inden Pharma. ALPLA, the international specialist in plastic packaging and recycling, and the internationally renowned Spanish pharmaceutical packaging company Inden Pharma, are starting a long-term partnership for the certified production of bottles, containers and closures in clean rooms, starting in March. The joint venture includes two ALPLApharma production sites in Greece (Koropi) and Poland (Żyrardów) and the two Spanish plants of Inden Pharma in Ibi, north of Alicante, as well as a jointly built fifth plant in Germany (Markdorf), which is scheduled to start production in June.
“We combine global presence with high standards and technology leadership. Together, we are even closer to our customers and are expanding our range of high-quality, cost-effective and sustainable packaging solutions,” says Philipp Lehner, CEO of ALPLA. Since entering the fast-growing market of pharmaceutical packaging in 2016, ALPLA has continuously expanded into new countries, technologies and product categories. Inden Pharma is also focused on strong growth. In the last four years, the company has tripled its sales to reach 30.5 million euros in 2022. Inden Pharma annually sells more than 550 million containers in 35 countries on 5 continents.
