Gerresheimer is seeking to show off its spirit of innovation as well as its wide product range in both pharmaceutical and cosmetics packaging at Taropak 2003. During the exhibition in Poznan/Poland from 16 to 19 September, pharmaceutics and cosmetics manufacturers have the opportunity to get detailed information on the Group“s products and (Hall 23B/EG, Stand 176). Together with Gerresheimer“s Polish subsidiary Polfa, its German companies Bnder Glas, Spessart Glas, Tettauer Glashttenwerke and Wisthoff and its Belgian company Nouvelles Verreries de Momignies, Gerresheimer is displaying what it has to offer in the way of quality and innovation in glass, plastic and other materials. Pharmaceutics has for some time been the strongest segment of the Gerresheimer business. In Poznan, trade visitors can obtain a concentrated overview of what the company can offer: the spectrum ranges from application and dosage systems made of glass and plastic to containers of all kinds: syringes, cartridges, droppers, inhalers and ampoules as well as light glass bottles, medicine vials, syrup bottles, tablet jars, wide-neck jars, and chemical/technical glass containers. The other half of Gerresheimer“s world is also open to trade visitors at the show: perfumery and cosmetics and the segment of miniature glass specialities. The focus here is on up-to-the-minute design. To help perfumes, skincare products, nail varnishes, deodorants spirit miniatures achieve an unmistakable market platform, Gerresheimer Group subsidiaries specialised in distinctive packaging use a gamut of techniques for shaping, colouring, satinising and printing of glass. Gerresheimer are convinced that glass will remain the preferred packaging material for premium products: it protects them, is almost limitlessly variable in design, and can be combined with other materials for decorative effect. The range of innovations presented in Poznan goes from classical elegance through playful romanticism to strikingly futuristic designs. Packaging is being used as never before to distinguish products and Gerresheimer is promising further development in this trend with completely new flacon types where the spray function is fully but invisibly integrated in the body of the flacon.
