Your reliable manufacturer of pharma packaging

Big requirements for small packaging: We develop and produce healthcare and pharma packaging that meets all the needs of companies and consumers. With the strictest standards for hygiene, product protection and counterfeit protection, along with user friendliness – from good readability and handling to child-proofing. Furthermore, finishes make OTC medicines and food supplements an eye-catcher at the POS.


Folding box variants

Which packaging types for products from the pharma industry?

The classic pharma packaging is the solid cardboard folding box with offset flaps. They can be assembled easily, stored in little space, filled simply, opened and reclosed on both sides and be fitted with additional security features, and they are compatible with almost all types of finishing. Depending on requirements, we also implement other designs, such as slider folding boxes, slip-lid boxes and much more. Standard features for our pharma packaging also include Braille, patient information leaflets, internal dividers and stabilising feet.

Our security strategy in four steps

Step 1

Technical linking of print image and order in the ERP system, technical comparison of printing plate and print image.

Step 2

Guaranteed security through linking a code specific to the order and design on the adhesive flap to the print approved by the customer.

Step 3

Check of print image, Braille and binary code.

Step 4

If desired, customer, order and product data printed directly on the shipping carton – instead of on a separate label.
