Gerresheimer has produced the flacon for Baldessarini Signature on behalf of Mäurer & Wirtz. The heavy, high-quality glass flacon is finished in elegant deep blue and symbolizes simple, stylish and timeless elegance. Its clear, elegant design with a certain extravagance matches the expressive fragrance composition.
The Asian market is a key priority for Gerresheimer. With a total of seven production sites in China and India, the company boasts an excellent basis for manufacturing pharmaceutical packaging from glass and plastic. Products such as inhalers, injection pens, and its new metal-free glass syringe are just as much part of its range as glass vials, ampoules, and cartridges or a wide selection of plastic medicine containers.
An Asian debut at CPhI China for the metal-free syringe
Traces of tungsten or other metals can occasionally remain in the drilled hole when the cone of a syringe is molded, which can cause a problem when they are used. There is therefore a need for pre-fillable syringe systems that ideally exclude the risk of metal contaminants, particularly for drugs based on bioengineered active substances. Gerresheimer has responded to this call by developing an innovative, patent-pending manufacturing technology and getting its 1 ml long Luerlock Gx RTF syringe ready for series production.
Technical expertise pooled in Asia
Gerresheimer opened a new development center for its medical systems made from plastic in the Chinese city of Dongguan in October 2014.
Its Technical Competence Center (TCC) in China is set up to independently handle and manage large-scale projects locally. Its includes the following main departments: project management, injection-molding technology, measurement technology, tool optimization, and tool purchasing. The local project management team looks after customer projects itself, meaning no language barrier or time difference for the clients. The TCC’s injection-molding team has its own sampling line complete with associated injection-molding machinery as well as its own measurement laboratory to validate its tools on site. This laboratory produces measurement reports for parts, optimizes key process parameters in order to achieve the best possible process outputs (DOE), and generates process capability indicators (Cpk analyses). The Chinese TCC is home to a highly qualified team of plastics and production engineers, project managers, quality planners, and process engineers.
The expert in injection vials
Gerresheimer’s Shuangfeng site manufactures vials, ampoules, cartridges, and other specialty products made from clear and amber glass types I, II, and III for its customers, pharma companies in Asia, the U.S., and Europe. Its trade fair booth will focus on injection vials, also known simply as vials. The ones manufactured at Gerresheimer Shuangfeng can hold between 1 and 50 ml.
Glass and plastic primary packaging for medicines
Gerresheimer has been strengthening its presence in Asia this year, opening a new production facility in the Indian city of Kosamba to make vials and ampoules for local and international customers. Gerresheimer thus now boasts three sites in India. The Neutral Glass plant in Kosamba manufactures pharmaceutical primary packaging made from container glass, while the Gerresheimer Kosamba factory next door produces vials and ampoules from tubular glass. The Triveni Polymers plant in Kundli makes plastic containers bearing the Triveni Round and Square brand name. With its Duma, Dudek, and Triveni product lines available worldwide, Gerresheimer offers a diverse range for all manner of different drugs in various forms and sizes and with various closure types.
Gerresheimer’s factories in Asia, Europe, and the Americas work closely together as part of a global network. They apply good manufacturing practice (CGMP) principles rigorously and are certified to ISO 9001 and 15378 as a bare minimum. All Gerresheimer products comply with the relevant pharmacopeias (Ph. Eur., USP, and JP).
Gerresheimer at CPhI China in Shanghai
Between June 20 and 22, Gerresheimer’s pharma specialists will be in booth W5E02 at CPhI in Shanghai, which is being held at the city’s New International Expo Centre (SNIEC).
Consumers are placing great importance on sustainable products, specifically on sustainable packaging solutions that can be disposed of in an environmentally friendly way. A pioneer in the quest for greater sustainability, Gerresheimer offers an extensive standard range of plastic packaging and devises customized solutions made from PET, R-PET, and BIO-PET plastics.
Glass production begins with engineering the mould. The more accurately the moulds are designed and made, the greater the quality of the bottle. A perfect and even distribution of glass is the key to success when it comes to ensuring the robustness and sustainability of these highly sensitive products. Gerresheimer employs innovative simulation software for this purpose.
Gerresheimer is driving sustainable cosmetic glass packaging by using more post-consumer recycled glass
As a leading producer of glass packaging for cosmetic products, Gerresheimer is committed to driving sustainability in the sector. Gerresheimer has been successfully producing glass with a high proportion of post-consumer recycled (PCR) material for over 10 years in Momignies, Belgium.
"People buy scent with their eyes,” says Bernd Stauch, Senior Director Sales Cosmetics at Gerresheimer. Gerresheimer’s new high-performance Decoration Centers at Momignies in Belgium and Tettau in Germany employ the latest technology such as UV printing, to ensure that perfume products look as good as they smell.
Gerresheimer’s factories in Tettau (Germany) and Momignies (Belgium) specialize in the industrial production of cosmetic glass and have been supplying notable customers in the cosmetics industry for decades. At both sites, newly created, high-performance “Decoration Centers” use modern techniques to customize sophisticated branded products for the cosmetics market.
Gerresheimer's Gx Elite vials help ensure patient safety
With its Gx Elite and Gx RTF vials, Gerresheimer presents two new type I vials made from borosilicate glass. The Gx Elite vials are the result of a careful product development process spanning several years. The highly shatter-resistant vials are extremely durable, free of cosmetic defects and can be customized for specialized customer requirements.
Gerresheimer is investing a mid-double-digit million Euro figure in the new plant in the North Macedonian capital of Skopje, an amount that is already included in the company’s medium-term investment plans. Construction is beginning in the first half of 2019, with completion scheduled for the first half of 2020. It is expected that start of production will take place in the second half of 2020.
Gerresheimer will use this year's Pharmapack held in Paris, Porte de Versailles, as a platform to unveil their latest ophthalmology and rhinology services at booth B62. The company has teamed up with select certified partners to add surface finishing of plastic dropper bottles to their irradiation services.
The Gerresheimer Group increased revenues at constant exchange rates by 8.8% in the third quarter of 2018, from EUR 335.0m in the prior-year quarter to EUR 364.4m. This includes EUR 3.5m from Sensile Medical, which was acquired in July 2018. On an organic basis—meaning adjusted for exchange rate effects and Sensile Medical—revenues went up by 7.8% relative to the prior-year quarter.
Gerresheimer's handy Duma Pocket tablet containers are well-known for being drugs containers that fit into any bag. Because they are oval, they don't take up much space. Another great feature is that it can't open itself when it's inside a bag. It’s irritating when this happens and the tablets become loose. This is also beneficial when sending the product to users in the mail.
Gerresheimer extends business model and increases growth forecast
Gerresheimer is acquiring Swiss technology company Sensile Medical AG and thus fundamentally extends its business model. The acquisition enables Gerresheimer to offer drug delivery platforms with digital and electronic capabilities for pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical customers.

Gerresheimer introduces metal-free syringes
Biopharmaceuticals demonstrate a series of special features. They are often highly viscous and in individual cases tend to interact with silicone oil or, for example, tungsten residue from syringe production. Gerresheimer therefore offers integrated thin-walled cannulas for the improved emptying capability of the syringe for these applications.
Gerresheimer presents the first US bottle produced in multilayer at CPhI 2016
