Gerresheimer Tubular Glass is regarded as a technology leader and ranks among the leading companies in the world market. As a vertically integrated manufacturer we produce borosilicate tubes internally as intermediate products. Clear or amber borosilicate glass tubing (type I) is then used to produce high-quality vials, ampoules, cartridges and syringes which complete our comprehensive range of glass primary packaging materials for pharmaceutics.
We specialize in solutions for all pharmaceutical tubular glass packaging and system requirements. Conti-nuous process optimization enables us to offer customized solutions on request.
At Gerresheimer, we make our customers’ priorities our own and we enjoy tackling challenging projects. We make our product development experts’ know-how, professionalism and creativity available to you to optimize existing systems or develop completely new ones. We act as a partner who can provide concepts for customized glass primary packaging materials as well as integrated drug-delivery concepts during the drug development process. This means you profit from our specific knowledge about the special properties of glass as a primary packaging material and about suitable surface-treatment processes. We guarantee efficient lifecycle management, we provide extensive technical documentation in connection with your project and we keep drug master files so that we can also support you with your product registrations.
Our production plants are equipped with state-of-the-art technology and comply with comprehensive quality standards. Parallel to introducing innovative optimizations in our product range, we also develop and refine procedures and processes ourselves. Our objectives are high glass quality combined with minimum risk of contamination. This can only be achieved by permanently monitoring the entire production process and by safe packaging procedures. For example, we today have a unique technology centre in which state-of-the-art processing plants for water for injection (WFI) and clean room systems set the basic standards for the production of sterile syringes. In our technology centre for vials, the continuous optimization of our technologically advanced visual inspection systems ensures that we can continue to meet increasingly strict quality standards. As a vertically integrated manufacturer, we also produce high quality glass tubes ourselves. Our plants rigorously apply current good manufacturing practices (cGMP) and are certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 9001, 13485 and/or 15378. Our products comply with the European and US pharmacopoeia requirements for glass primary packaging material.
