Airnov, a global leader in innovating packaging solutions for the healthcare market, has completed an expansion and upgrade of its manufacturing facilities in Changshu, China.
The modernization of the site, which is around 100 kilometers northwest of Shanghai, includes installing new production lines that enable the company to produce a wider range of products at greater volumes. As a result of the investment, the company brings several new products to the Chinese market.
The first is the HDPE bottle fitted with CRC caps. Made using a thick plastic polymer, they provide a superior barrier to humidity versus regular bottles, offering a low moisture vapor transmission rate (MVTR).
Operating as a standard SP400 bottleneck and screw cap, the product can be produced in various sizes, from 30milliliters up to 150milliliters. It also carries complete pharmaceutical compliance certificates from the Chinese NMPA. In time, certification will be achieved worldwide from the likes of the FDA and European Union so that the products are available to all Airnov customers.

The newly expanded facility at Changshu will also be able to produce higher quantities of Airnov’s Hat Snap product. This active and ergonomic vial with a desiccant stopper also includes tamper-evidence features to help prevent counterfeiting.
Commenting on the strategic importance of the investment, Albert Zhao, general manager of Airnov Asia Pacific, said, “The expansion has created and optimized an additional manufacturing space for our continuously growing business needs. In the meantime, we will strive to consistently offer better quality and sustainable products to customers both here in China and around the world.”
