Russ Stevens Discusses PCI Operations In Healthcare Packaging Article

Russ Stevens of PCI discusses how technology discovered at Pack Expo has increased its healthcare packaging facility safety and efficiency

The need to maintain a clean, safe, and efficient supply chain is consistently a top-of-mind need for producers and healthcare packaging specialists worldwide. To stay ahead of increasing costs and demands, pharmaceutical contract packer PCI Pharma Services (PCI) will join industry leaders at Pharma EXPO to see up close the latest technology available to meet today’s—and tomorrow’s—needs.

“PACK EXPO is a convenient and efficient way for PCI to stay abreast of the latest technologies that will keep us competitive,” says Russ Stevens, PCI’s Senior Manager for Facilities Engineering and Maintenance. “Not only can we see how new technology can help us now, but it provides a chance for us to talk to the same tech manufacturers about our future needs. Our ability to talk with manufacturers and see the product firsthand is very beneficial, and of course the location is extremely convenient.”

In the pharmaceutical and healthcare packaging markets, PCI provides customized packaging services for several delivery forms including oral solids, powders, and parenterals at its 14 sites in North America and Europe. Providing packaging for global markets in excess of more than 100 countries, PCI supports clients in bringing more than 50 products to market each year.

As a contract packager, PCI works with clients from the earliest stages of clinical development through to commercialization and ongoing commercial supply. Ensuring an environment that implements current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMPs), alongside appropriate design, supervision, and control of manufacturing processes is critical to preventing particle contamination that can threaten the safety and integrity of pharmaceutical products.
