Pharmapack Europe: rlc focuses on safety and system solutions
Hanover, 19. January 2015 – The rlc | packaging group appearance at this year's Pharmapack Europe in Paris from 11 to 12 February 2015, hall 5, booth 319 focuses on product safety. Together with their profit centers brandpack and PAS Media, rlc is showcasing its comprehensive pharmaceutical packaging expertise. The group of companies has invested continuously in recent years in its pharmaceutical division to meet the demands of the pharmaceutical industry by offering made-to-measure solutions with a special emphasis on packaging safety technologies.
The rlc | packaging group will present its complete portfolio of packaging solutions and comprehensive system services for the pharmaceutical industry at this year's exhibition for pharmaceutical products in Paris. A major focus of the rlc trade show appearance is on product safety.
"A variety of combinable technologies for optimal product protection are currently in use. With this in mind, we have invested in new technologies that enable us to offer the required safety features," explains Walter Würfel, Sales Director Pharmaceuticals at rlc. These innovations include special finishes designed for brand protection along with various tamper-proof solutions and packaging serialization. One of the latest safety technologies is the new FK Codingline, an inline technology for extremely efficient protection against counterfeiting. "Specially configured for rlc, this system enables us to apply labels to the packaging and serialize them in a single operation."
Together with its expertise in specialization, the rlc pharmaceutical division continues to grow. "Working in ultra-modern pharmaceutical packaging centers, rlc produces folding boxes, leaflets and labels. In order to guarantee the best possible service to our customers, our PHARMACENTERs specialize in meeting the specific needs of the industry," says Würfel. Along with production and design, the PHARMACENTERs provide additional services including folding box packing, leaflets and primary packaging in compliance with §13 of the German Medicines Act. To enable short production runs with maximum flexibility, rlc recently invested 4.5 million Euros in a full-scale production line at its site in Rüdersdorf near Berlin. "Our subsidiary BSC Drukarnia in Poznan, Poland launched a new PHARMACENTER with an identical portfolio in 2013. This year, we are planning to open our third PHARMACENTER in Zurich," Würfel adds.
From initial design concepts to logistics, the family-owned company covers the entire packaging value chain for the pharmaceutical industry. The design agency brandpack, responsible for creating eye-catching packaging solutions in close cooperation with production and packing operations, will be exhibiting in Paris along with PAS Media, a GMP-validated artwork lifecycle management system for efficient, fast and safe workflow in packaging printing. As a comprehensive system supplier, rlc is positioned to ensure highly efficient and safe pharmaceutical packaging production that integrates all key aspects and includes pioneering expertise in the field of packaging machinery.
