Flexible packaging provider Oracle Packaging has completed a capital investment in its Winston-Salem, NC facility to expand its extrusion capabilities and capacity. 

Completed in December, the new extrusion line was designed and developed in conjunction with extrusion technology provider Davis Standard. The company reports that the line’s first products have already been delivered to customers. 

“As a part of our strategic planning process, we recognized the need for an investment that would meet the increasing demands of our customers in terms of sealant performance and improve overall economics,” explains Oracle CEO Jim Squatrito in a news statement. “The marketplace is becoming more and more challenging, and technology investments are required to meet the expectations of our customers.”

Chris Payne tells PMP News that “the addition of this extrusion line allows Oracle to expand our line of custom, sealable, and easy-peel products beyond food packaging to the pharma and medical device marketplace. This new line will provide cost-effective, easy-open, and sterilizable packaging solutions for a wide range of barrier/non-barrier and foil and non-foil pouches, lids and rollstock specifically for the pharmaceutical and medical device markets.”

Oracle Packaging manufactures custom lid stock, pouch stock, and other products for specific barrier and sealant performance. For more details visit
