Saniton Plastic opens new manufacturing facility in Cornwall
CORNWALL, Ontario – Saniton Plastic has established a new manufacturing facility in the Cornwall Business Park and has begun full-scale production of custom plastic bottles and bottling solutions for a variety of customers.
The recently renovated 106,000 square foot establishment is located at 3400 Montreal Road, overlooking the St. Lawrence River. The facility is equipped with state-of-the-art blow molding equipment that enables the production of a full line of recycled PET (polyethylene terephthalate) plastic bottles. The manufacturing line is complete with automated filling, capping and labeling machines and also offers packaging solutions.
“The new facility gives us ample space for our production needs with room for growth in the future,” says Makiah Virtue, executive coordinator of Saniton Plastic. “Cornwall’s strategic location makes it easy for us to ship our products to our customers.”
At present, the bottles will be produced primarily to meet the demand of Saniton Plastic’s sub-division: True North hand sanitizers. Saniton Plastic manufactures and packages natural health products under the True North brand for worldwide distribution. Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) are used to ensure the safety and quality of all products. This commitment to excellence ensures the highest standards and practices in the manufacturing, storage, handling and distribution of natural and non-prescription health products (NHPs).
Best of all, True North is 100% Canadian and strives to maintain Canada’s excellent worldwide reputation as a supplier of high quality natural health products.
“The pandemic has dramatically increased demand for Covid relief work and essential supplies,” says Lana Pacheco, COO of Saniton Plastic. “We are proud to offer a“ Made in Canada ”solution to our customers and to contribute to the economic recovery of Eastern Ontario.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic in the country, the demand for hand sanitizer has grown exponentially since the start of 2020. Recent forecasts indicate that the global hand sanitizer market is expected to grow at a rate of compound annual growth of 22.6% from 2020
“We don’t just produce bottles, we forge relationships, strengthen partnerships and share our customers’ vision,” said Ramzi El-Khatib, vice president of Saniton Plastic. “Our commitment is to produce products of uncompromising quality.”
