We partner with everyone in the pharma supply chain

Redefining packaging for a changing world

The pharmaceutical and medical market is changing fast, with shifting consumption patterns, new technologies and emerging markets. In addition, the expiry of patents is prompting major manufacturers to diversify.

Right across the supply chain, stricter regulations mean even higher quality standards must be met.

During the shipping and storage of drugs, our packaging solutions deliver quality and efficiency, carefully balancing anti-counterfeiting protection and the safety and security of contents with cost and environmental impact.

For medical devices, our effective packaging preserves the sterility and usability of often high-value goods, protecting you from potentially multi-million-euro product recalls.
