Pharmaceutical, Medical Device, Cell & Gene and Healthcare Technology.

Pharmaceutical technology is constantly evolving so we move with it, we upgrade and change our equipment and methods, smoothing out processes, this not only reduces cost but gives our customers visibility, traceability and reliability.

We have a diverse range of clients and can service any area in the world.

State-of-the-art OEE measurement

We run Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) software on our lines to give us in-depth access to a whole new dimension of data previously unavailable to many industries.

We constantly review our systems, upgrading equipment and software being used across all our facilities. The process improvements we implement translate to cost savings for our customers.

Intelligent real-time data

We use real-time data from our IoT (Internet of Things) sensors in every clean room, this measures OEE (overall equipment effectiveness) informing production management of line speed challenges. Using the changing performance data, our production management dynamically adjusts the production line to ensure greater and more effective throughput.

The Mission…

Our mission is to add value, to our customers, our employees, the local community we operate in, the environment and our other stakeholders.

As an outsource service provider we frequently beat our customer’s internal capabilities with better quality and at a lower cost.

We welcome competition and if another service provider can beat us on quality and service we will be happy to work with them to provide the customer with the most optimal solution.
