Pharmaceutical service provider Vetter has reportedly announced the expansion of its secondary packaging capacity at its Ravensburg site, in response to rising customer demand for complex packaging solutions.

Senior Vice President (Quality) at Vetter, Wolfgang Weikmann was reportedly quoted stating that the extensive know-how and state-of-the-art technologies are bundled at the company which has created real value for customers along with user-friendly, highly-quality administration systems and compliance with regulatory requirements.

The demand for the systems manufactured by Vetter has been continuously increasing as they facilitate self-medication for many users. For instance, diabetes patients benefit from the exact dosage and ease of handling the system during application. The company has reportedly reached a position where it can meet the different demands of patients, customers, and authorities owing to many years of experience and the expertise of its staff.

According to a press release issued by Vetter, the latest extension consists of investments in modern analysis and testing processes. In addition to stability tests and standard release, the company would be able to provide more extensive tests for autoinjectors from March 2019. Sources familiar with the development claim that these enhancements were achieved through the efforts of a specialized team of engineers who worked on digital documentation of auto-injectors, enabled application simulations, and developed the testing machine.

Senior Vice President of Production and Engineering at Vetter, Bernd Stauss reportedly commented that the firm is able to individually package anything from small clinical to large commercial quantities due to the modular utilization of various advanced machines. Inclusion of these secure and user-friendly but complex packaging solutions among its core competencies ensures that these systems react flexibly to evolving customer structures and requirements, Stauss further added.

For the record, Vetter is a specialist provider of a wide range of packaging solutions and prefilled drug-delivery systems. In addition to serialization, blister packing, and labelling, the firm provides technically sophisticated packaging solutions such as assembly of safety devices, auto-injectors, and pens.
