(Windsor, Ontario, Canada – April 18, 2008) Accucaps Industries, a leader in soft gelatin encapsulation products recently announced that it has converted its newest facility in Strathroy, Ontario to focus on the production of Health & Nutritionals (H&N) and Cosmetic products.
“The 125,000 square foot, NHPD-licensed, GMP facility will become the ‘centre of excellence’ for the manufacturing and production of H&N in North America,” says Peter Wares, Director of Sales & Marketing. Offering a turnkey solution from concept to commercialization, the new facility has product compounding, 16 encapsulation machines capable of producing 4 billion doses, a large temperature-controlled
warehouse, and capabilities for blistering, bottling and distribution.
Effectively doubling the total manufacturing and production capacity for Accucaps, the Southwestern Ontario operation enhances Accucaps’ ability to meet the needs of H&N marketers such as shorter lead times, competitive pricing and dependable product quality.

Accucaps’ facilities are registered with the FDA and Health Canada. “Our strength in manufacturing and packaging a range of products that meet or exceed industry quality has allowed us to partner with our customers to supply products to markets in North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Australia and the Middle East.”
