Customer: Bayer HealthCare
Product: Fluid-Bag Multi
Dr. Jörg Schirmer, Head of Ointment Packaging, GP Grenzach Produktions GmbH:
“We are using Fluid-Bags as quarantine containers for our ointments, but also for internal transport between production, store room and packing department. The flexible, closed, sterile and durable Fluid-Bag container offers us both product safety and good economy.
Thanks to the automatic Discharge Roller we can empty the containers almost completely. This increases our competitiveness and minimizes the environmental load.
The Fluid-Bag system was easily adapted to our production lines and our employees have been trained in handling this modern system. In addition to the present application we have visions of further development possibilities with the Fluid-Bag solution.”
Sanofi-aventis and Fluid-Bag
Product: Fluid-Bag Multi
Sanofi-aventis is a global healthcare leader and the first pharmaceutical company in emerging markets with a broad and balanced presence.
The pharmaceutical industry benefits from Fluid-Bag’s closed system guaranteeing neither particles nor germs enter the container. The Origgio plant in Italy has used Fluid-Bag containers for many years for their product “Maalox” suspension for the German and South African markets.
Within the pharmaceutical industry Fluid-Bag is often used for intermediate storage. In this case the product is packed into Fluid-Bags in Italy from where it is sent for repacking into consumer packs to be shipped to their markets around the world.
Cost effectiveness is achieved using Fluid-Bag’s MULTI system based on a returnable steel pallet. After repacking only the MULTI pallet is returned to Sanofi-aventis. A great advantage is that the pallet takes up only 1/5 of the volume of conventional containers. New, sterile inner containers are used when the Fluid-Bags are refilled.
