According to a recent forecast by IMS Health, the innovative and ever-changing pharmaceutical industry is projected to grow to $1.4 trillion globally by 2020, reaching a whopping 4.5 trillion doses of medicines. Tied to this trend is the growth in pharmaceutical packaging, which is expected to surpass $100 billion globally by 2019. Proper packaging plays an important role in the pharmaceutical industry, ensuring the safe distribution, identification, and tracking of all products. Headquartered in Covington, KY, ProMach, a leading packaging expert, is revolutionizing the pharmaceutical industry by designing, manufacturing, integrating, and supporting the most sophisticated and advanced packaging solutions. Mark Anderson, president and CEO of the company says, “We provide performance solutions including design/build, engineering services, and productivity software to optimize packaging line design and to deliver maximum uptime, ensure compliance, and protect sustainability.”
Founded in 1998, ProMach is a family of best-in-class packaging solution brands that operate across the entire packaging spectrum, serving manufacturers of all sizes and geographies. The product brands are grouped into distinct business lines, covering every function of the packaging line: from filling and capping to product handling and labeling to coding and end of line. “We integrate all of the components of the whole packaging line in one facility. This way, the customer has a single point of contact and one place to visit for all design reviews and factory acceptance testing (FAT),” adds Anderson. Product applications include bottle unscrambling, capping, conveying, cottoning, sealing, and tablet counting systems as well as turnkey line integration services.
“Two of ProMach’s top product brands in the pharma business line include NJM Packaging and Weiler Labeling Systems,” mentions Anderson. NJM Packaging is a well-established brand that has been manufacturing proven solutions and providing experienced, high-value customer support for over a century now. The company’s association with NJM has helped ProMach fill in the gaps that existed in their pharmaceutical product portfolio and maintain strong growth in the market. On the other hand, the addition of Weiler Labeling Systems expanded ProMach’s capabilities in the complex serialization, documentation, and FAT requirements of pharmaceutical and medical packaging.
ProMach’s performance services inject measurable performance into any packaging line, system, or process— regardless of which manufacturer’s machines are in the build—overcoming engineering challenges and other unforeseen obstacles. The company also offers pre-integration of partial or entire packaging lines which can be built and tested in any of their global facilities. “This minimizes risk, reduces downtime and startup curves, resolves integration issues, and ensures immediate success at the client’s plant floor,” affirms Anderson.
Their customer-centric approach and ability to offer top-notch quality in terms of performance, maintenance, and design of their products is what sets ProMach apart in the marketplace. “We are very proactive in our equipment design and product development to constantly enhance the customer experience,” says Anderson. “Our long-standing success and growth are built around four core elements: operations excellence, product excellence, customer service excellence, and connection excellence.”
Operating across multiple locations in the U.S., Europe, and Asia, with a diverse customer base ranging from Fortune 500 companies to smaller, privately-held businesses worldwide, ProMach serves across 30,000 unique locations with the same level of performance and innovation. In the days to come, as the industry evolves, the company plans on working closely with its customers to help them develop the best possible solutions that meet all of their needs on the packaging production floor. “We will continue to deliver innovation from every corner, creating complete solutions from our family of best-in-class packaging partners and beyond,” wraps up Anderson.
