Steripack Drives Pharma Packaging Growth

SteriPack’s facility in Malaysia ensures that the group can offer state of the art blister packaging services all over the globe.

SteriPack is a worldwide packaging solutions provider, serving the medical device and pharmaceutical industries. Since its foundation in 1994, the company has invested significantly by building its processes and quality systems to extremely high standards throughout its facilities located in Ireland, Poland, Malaysia, and the US.

In recent times, SteriPack’s facility in Asia has specialised in pharmaceutical opportunities, with pharma now accounting for 50% of its business exports to over 52 countries. The facility, which is located in Klang, Selangor, Malaysia, has been extended in recent months, expanding its pharmaceutical packaging services within its new purpose built cGMP compliant Grade D facility, assisting pharmaceutical and allied healthcare companies who require outsourced blister packaging services.“Companies from the pharmaceutical and healthcare sector have to comply with very strict safety rules,” explains John Ward, Managing Director SteriPack Malaysia.“As well as ensuring the best protection of the drugs and allowing full traceability, the contribution of the packaging to greater efficiency and cost reduction has become a major factor.”

The SteriPack Malaysia MD believes that “the days of air freighting finished product all over the world are starting to end”. This is where SteriPack have a huge advantage: “The ability to be able to offer state of the art packing facilities in Asia is a major attraction for our global customers.”

For SteriPack, demand for Blister Contract Packaging continues to grow amongst their pharmaceutical client base. “We have plans to expand our pharmaceutical packaging service offerings in 2013 to allow for bulk bottle filling, powder filling and liquid filling, all within a cGMP environment,” Ward noted. “This extra facility will be fully operational by January 2014.”

SteriPack also provide a wide range of cleanroom manufactured barrier foil packaging solutions to the pharmaceutical industry. SteriPack’s focus is to provide customers with a responsive, can-do attitude to almost any pharmaceutical packaging request.
