CapsCanada, a leading provider of empty capsules for pharmaceutical drugs and dietary supplements, opened its new K-CAPS, HPMC capsules, manufacturing facility in Lakeshore, Ontario, Canada
. The firm has already generated more than 25 jobs and invested over $10 million in the new facility.
Dale Martin, General Manager said, “KCAPS are currently sold in more than 60 countries around the world.” He added that: “Compared to other HPMC capsules, K-CAPS have exceptional appearance and run better on automatic capsule filling machines, which directly translates into reduced downtime and reduced raw material loss for our customers.”
“This is the first step of an ongoing capacity expansion; we will continue investing and generating jobs in North America: by the end of 2014 we expect to have had generated more than 40 new jobs in Canada and the U.S.” said Martin.
