Here the special focus is on borosilicate tubular glass: in addition to a widely varied range of pharma containers the display also comprises prefillable syringe systems.
In China, Gerresheimer now has five of its own production plants for tubular and moulded glass. So the globally active Group has also established itself in the strongly growth-oriented Chinese market as one of the most important suppliers of high-quality glass products for pharmaceutics and medicine. At the exhibition in Qingdao it is represented by experts from its competence centres Kimble Italiana and Bünder Glas. “Our main information themes have already encountered an excellent response at API China in Chengdu in May,” says Burkhard Lingenberg, Director of Corporate PR and Marketing for the Gerresheimer Group. “We want to follow this up and are delighted to be able to offer an even larger product spectrum to the highly interested Chinese specialist public this time.”
Tubular-glass specialist Kimble provides information about the entire range based on borosilicate glass which is produced by the Group itself as a vertically integrated manufacturer – starting with the still unshaped tubes as intermediary products from which a wide variety of vials, ampoules and cartridges are manufactured in further production steps. Bünder Glas concentrates on the most highlydeveloped form of tubular-glass products: visitors can see the latest generation of prefillable sterile all-glass syringe systems under the leading trademark RTF® (Ready to Fill) with which Gerresheimer today enjoys a worldwide reputation as the technological leader. An extensive series of accessories for maximum safety before, during and after the injection complements the syringe range.In the entire field of primary packaging for pharmaceutics and related laboratory requirements, Gerresheimer ranks internationally among the most successful partners for the pharmaceutical industry and for many years has also enjoyed a high reputation in the Asian market. The Group offers the pharma market an extraordinarily wide product range which also comprises packaging and system solutions based on plastic. In total it manufactures today in more than twenty locations in Europe, America and Asia. In China it operates a moulded-glass production plant through Beijing Gerresheimer and two production plants for tubular-glass packaging through Shuangfeng plus, through the BGIF Group (just recently), two tubular-glass plants specialising particularly in laboratory glassware.
