Germany-based rlc packaging group has completed the expansion of its Pharmacenter in Rüdersdorf near Berlin by doubling machine capacity, in an effort to address the growing demand for pharmaceutical packaging.
In the new building, folding box production was launched in July 2012 and the package inserts production has commenced in early November 2012.
In its Pharmacenter, rlc offers a range of services including filling and packing of folding boxes, leaflets and pre-packed medications.
rlc pharmaceutical division in charge Walter Würfel said the company is authorized to handle pharmaceutical packaging in accordance with Paragraph 13 of the German Medicinal Products Act.
"We assemble and distribute folding boxes, pre-packed drugs and package leaflets at our PHARMACENTER," Würfel said.
Pharmacenter, which has been organized according to lean production principles and automation, produces a portfolio of package inserts, which range from flat and pre-folded inserts to outserts.
