Gerresheimer and Triveni: FDA certified plastic packaging for solid and liquid drugs

Düsseldorf/Paris, February 13, 2013 – Gerresheimer AG, one of the world’s leading partners of the pharma and healthcare industry, acquired the majority shareholding in the Indian company Triveni to further accelerate its growth in the emerging markets. Triveni is a leading manufacturer of plastic containers and closures for the pharma industry with a strong track record of more than a decade production of regulated pharma packaging.

Triveni Polymers Ltd. Pvt. is a leading manufacturer of pharmaceutical plastic packaging in India with more than 300 employees, an office in New Delhi and a plant in the nearby city of Kundli (Haryana Province, India). Established in 1979, it was the first Indian company to get crucial Drug Master Files (DMF) approval for plastic containers and closures from the FDA (Food and Drug Administration).

Triveni specializes in plastic bottles and caps for the US and the Indian market. With the acquisition of Triveni, Gerresheimer is now able to offer customers an even more substantial range of pharmaceutical containers and caps.
