Gerresheimer's Breaking Ground for Glass


To satisfy the high requirements of its customers, packaging provider Gerresheimer has invested in its production facilities at its plants in Momignies, Belgium and Tettau, Germany to enhance its cosmetics glass and finishing capabilities.

With a new furnace in Momignies and new high-performance multicolor printing machines, the company said it will be able to produce jars and bottles in an even higher quality than before.

This news comes amid the packaging industry's boom for glass. The global cosmetic and perfume glass bottle market is expected to post a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.30% over the period 2014-2019, according to a recent Research and Markets report.
