Platinum Press Opens New Jersey Facility


GRAND PRAIRIE, TX | Platinum Press (PPI), a provider of healthcare packaging solutions for the pharmaceutical, medical device, and animal care sectors that specializes in labels, folding cartons, blister packaging, inserts/outserts, and medication guides, reports the acquisition of a new 60,000-sq-ft packaging facility in Pine Brook, NJ.

Approximately 55,000 sq ft will be dedicated to manufacturing and operations, while 5,000 sq ft will be earmarked for office use. As the business continues to grow, an additional 40,000 sq ft of production/office space is available for immediate use.

The new facility will be fully equipped and staffed to produce all of the same printed packaging components as its headquarters in Grand Prairie, including digital, flexographic, and lithographic printing capabilities utilizing state-of-the-art machinery, including several large-format insert/outsert folders. PPI expects the New Jersey facility to become fully operational during Q1 of 2015 and to employ approximately 40 highly skilled packaging professionals.

The new location will also allow us to strengthen our position in the northeast market and better serve our expanding customer base.”
