Vetter Pharma, a leading provider of aseptically pre-filled injection systems, has completed the installation of several new automatic packaging lines at the company’s new packaging services facility. The packaging facility allows Vetter to package its injection systems for delivery to its clients. The building, which cost 20 million euros to build, has room for 200 employees.
Vetter Managing Director, Thomas Otto said: "Secondary packaging features optimal conditions for pharmaceutical finishing and is becoming a critical issue for our customers worldwide. With the new facility, we can respond effectively to growing demand. The new state-of-the-art packaging facility strengthens our company as well as enhancing the range of services we are able to provide. It also gives us the ability to perform all services at the highest possible standard, thus giving our clients important reasons for continued, long-term cooperation."
The existing production and packaging facilities have gradually been relocated from their former premises on Holbeinstrasse into the new facility since autumn 2008. The Holbeinstrasse facility still houses the central storage facility and the company's optical control. The successful relocation to the new facility completes another expansion step at the Ravensburg-Mariatal site. Prior to the construction of the new facility, Vetter had already invested 100 million euros in the construction of a facility for the pharmaceutical filling of drugs into injection systems.
