Vetter to expand its Secondary Packaging Service capacity to meet rising demands

Investment will contribute to a one-stop solution approach for customers

Vetter announced a major expansion of its secondary packaging capacities as a response to rising customer needs and market demands for complex packaging solutions. The need for expansion is also a result of Vetter’s continuous growth in new filling lines and new lyophilizers, which is driving the need for increased downstream secondary packaging capacity. The project, already underway, is occurring within the second floor of Vetter’s existing Secondary Packaging (VSP) facility and will result in an increase of approximately 32,000 square feet of new packaging capacity.

The planned undertaking, which is expected to be completed over the next several years, will include new fully-automated packaging lines, space for manual and semi-automated packaging processes and assembly equipment for a wide variety of formats. The Vetter serialization and aggregation service, which fulfills current requirements and is prepared for future requirements of regulatory authorities, will also be expanded. A highly flexible, state-of-the-art syringe blister line will include safety device assembly and equipment for packaging Japan quality. The addition of new state-of-the-art assembly machines for pens and autoinjectors will allow Vetter to meet a majority of the growing market need for these systems. Because Vetter suppliers for the platform technologies are market leaders with a strong reputation in the market, a large selection of diverse pen and autoinjector types are offered.

“Often we hear from customers that a high level of expertise in the assembly and packaging of pens, autoinjectors and safety devices is critical for their success,” said Bernd Stauss, Senior Vice President Production/Engineering for Vetter. “Vetter has this experience and can offer a one-stop solution, from development to filling to secondary packaging including serialization of products; a service that is greatly appreciated by our customers.” The demand for integrated solutions is steadily growing. In the future, the pharmaceutical service provider will continue to expand its offering for one-stop-shop solutions - especially in complex areas such as the secondary packaging of end-user friendly devices which support patient safety, convenience and compliance.
