Gerresheimer at the Innopack Pharma Confex 2017

Gerresheimer consolidates presence in Asia with new Indian production site.

At its new state-of-the-art production site in the Indian city of Kosamba, the Gerresheimer Group produces pharmaceutical vials and ampoules from tubular glass for injectables. The company is to showcase its new products to an audience of Indian and international experts for the first time at the Innopack Pharma Confex in Mumbai. Dr. Volker Rekowski, Senior Director for Quality Europe & Asia Tubular Glass and Chairman of the Gerresheimer Quality Council, will talk about Gerresheimer’s zero-defect strategy.

“Gerresheimer is the international specialist in vials, ampoules, and cartridges,” says Sales Director Saibal Sengupta. The new Gerresheimer Pharmaceutical Packaging plant in Kosamba is boosting Neutral Glass’s presence and adding tubular-glass packaging to its range of glass containers. In addition, Gerresheimer has been producing pharmaceutical packaging from plastics for several years in partnership with Kundlibased Triveni Polymers, making it one of the leading specialists in pharmaceutical primary packaging in India too. All these products are produced in line with the relevant pharmacopeias (Ph. Eur., USP, and JP).

Gerresheimer’s trade fair booth will focus on injection vials, also known simply as vials. They are amongst the world’s most popular pharmaceutical packaging solutions and Gerresheimer’s can hold between 1 and 50 ml. As well as its vials, the company will also be showcasing other core products including ampoules, cartridges, and other specialty products made from clear and amber glass types I, II, and III.

Presentation on Gerresheimer’s zero-defect strategy “Our customers receive the same level of quality no matter where they are in the world,” Volker Rekowski will emphasize in his talk. The consistent zero-defect strategy is based on a “product-by-process” approach. Having a uniform global standard for its state-of-the-art machinery and employees who are trained in the production process ensures that all the workflows at the Gerresheimer Group’s plants meet the same high standards.
