Schott has been appointed to India’s national standards body – the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). As a new BIS member, the company will advise CHD-10, a subcommittee of the Chemicals Department, on specifications and guidelines for various kinds of glass manufacturing in India – mainly for pharmaceutical tubing but also for other applications such as fire-safe glass, household appliances, and fiber optics. This allows BIS to tap into Schott’s vast experience in the areas of speciality glasses, materials and advanced technologies.
“It is a tremendous privilege to support BIS in improving glass manufacturing standards in India,” says Sundeep Prabhu, Vice President Marketing and Sales for Pharmaceutical Tubing at Schott Glass India. “This milestone is another illustration of the outstanding standardization of product quality and manufacturing processes Schott has achieved in India. Together with BIS, our efforts will benefit Indian consumers as well as industry by ensuring that glass products are safe, reliable and of highest quality.”
BIS’ decision underlines Schott’s position as a global leader in high quality glass manufacturing. Working closely with India’s national standards body, Schott will share its decades of expertise with the aim of enhancing production and testing standards of India’s glass manufacturing industry. For more than 125 years, Schott has constantly improved its quality standards to accommodate evolving market demands and deliver maximum benefits to its customers. A key global success factor for Schott has been its strong focus on maintaining the highest quality standards. Company data released recently proves that Schott managed to maintain stringent quality standards in the area of pharmaceutical tubing consistently over the last 25 years (1988-2013).
“At Schott, we have been setting standards for manufacturing glass tubing with our technical terms of supply. This means we are committed to constantly improve our production process and offer our customers the highest possible transparency and quality assurance,” says Jürgen Achatz, Global Sales Director for Pharmaceutical Tubing at Schott.
