FCE Pharma 2015: Gerresheimer offers with DropAid an innovative packaging idea out of plastic for South America

Düsseldorf/São Paulo, May 5, 2015. DropAid, the practical applicaton aid, is one example for the innovative ideas of Gerresheimer. The company will be presenting new plastic products and systems for the pharmaceutical industry at FCE Pharma – the 20th International Exhibition of Technology for the Pharmaceutical Industry – which takes place at the Transamerica Expo Center, São Paulo/Brazil from May 12-14, 2015 at stand no. C150.

“Do you know how difficult it is to use a typical eye dropper?”asked Wellington Lentini, General Manager of Gerresheimer Plásticos São Paulo Ltda, and explained the easy functionality: “DropAid is an application aid for daily use. It helps dropper bottle users to open the bottle and, when placed on the bottle neck, it makes it easy and simple to positioning the dropper correctly above the eye.”

With four production facilities in Brazil and one in Argentina Gerresheimer is a market leader for plastic pharmaceutical packaging in South America. In Querétaro/Mexico, the company has a production plant where it manufactures ampoules, vials and syringes made of tubular glass for the Latin American pharma market.

The portfolio includes dropper bottles for eye drops, spray bottles for nasal sprays, PET bottles for cough medicine, PE containers for tablets, plus a wide range of caps, closures and all kinds of accessories such as dosing caps, droppers, measuring cups, dosing syringes and the applicators.

Gerresheimer has received a “Sindusfarma Quality Award” in the category of National Manufacturer of the Plastic Bottles and Caps in 14 consecutive years and is nominated again in 2015. The Sindusfarma Quality Award recognizes  suppliers and service providers that perform in Brazil for the pharmaceutical industry that have stood out in the previous year, especially for their contributions to continuously raising quality standards and conformity with safety requirements in all stages of the drug manufacturing process.

The award winners will be announced at a ceremony in São Paulo on May 11th, 2015 , which is expected to be attended by some 2,000  pharmaceutical industry professionals.
