Pharmapack Europe: rlc presents comprehensive pharmaceutical packaging expertise
rlc | packaging group debuts with future-oriented solutions at the trade show conference in Paris / PHARMACENTER in Spreitenbach opens in Q2/2014
Hanover, 15 January 2014 – The rlc │ packaging group will be presenting packaging solutions from their PHARMACENTERs at this year's Pharmapack Europe in Paris on 12-13 February 2014 at booth 222. Over the past two years, rlc has invested heavily in its pharmaceuticals division. As a comprehensive system supplier, the company meets pharmaceutical industry demands with custom designed solutions. rlc has already significantly expanded capacities at its PHARMACENTERs in Ruedersdorf/Berlin and in Poznan, Poland. The company's third state-of-the-art pharmaceutical packaging center will open in the second quarter of 2014 in Spreitenbach near Zurich, Switzerland. The system supplier will be demonstrating its pharmaceutical expertise to trade show visitors in Paris with a wide range of packaging concepts that focus on current industry themes, including tamper-proof packaging.
In Paris, rlc will be showing international trade visitors concepts and solutions tailored to current and future pharmaceutical industry challenges. Tamper-proof packaging clearly plays an important role. As of 2016, EU Directive 2011/62/EU requires all medicinal products to have tamper-proof outer packaging. Prototypes with tamper-proof seals will be on display at the rlc stand. Company representatives will also be presenting packaging prototypes designed to stand out at point of sale, effectively prevent falsification or offer special convenience. These factors clearly improve the success of pharmaceutical products.
"We cover the entire pharmaceutical industry packaging value chain for our customers. At Pharmapack Europe we will be demonstrating how we support the industry with comprehensive services and create synergies with our packaging expertise from our Beauty and Confectionery divisions," explained Walter Würfel, Sales Director Pharmaceuticals at rlc. The company is currently expanding its capacity at three plant sites. "The PHARMACENTER scheduled to start production in Spreitenbach near Zurich in the second quarter of 2014 builds on the range produced by our pharmaceutical packaging centers in Ruedersdorf/Berlin and Poznan." These three rlc sites serve the growing demand for high-quality pharmaceutical packaging and system services from a single source.
