A Closer Look at the UK Pharmaceutical Industry
The UK pharmaceutical industry is a multi-billion-pound sector that is constantly innovating and adapting to the changing needs of society. There’s over 780 companies operating within it and it’s one of the largest industries in Europe, responsible for producing medicines, medical devices, diagnostic equipment, and vaccines.
With so much money being invested into developing new treatments, there is also an increased emphasis on quality assurance processes in order to ensure that products comply with all relevant regulations before they hit the market.
One of the core ways that pharmaceutical companies ensure their products are safe and effective, is through packaging.
UK Engineers For Your Pharmaceutical Packaging Machines
Managing pharmaceutical packaging is a complex process that requires specific expertise and equipment. In the UK, there are a variety of machines that can help streamline the process, ensuring accuracy and efficiency. Let’s take a look at some of the key benefits of using UK engineering-based pharmaceutical packaging machines.
One of the biggest advantages to using packaging machines that have UK engineering coverage is the ability to customize them to suit the specific needs of your business. Whether your company needs to package small items such as pills or large items like syringes, you will be able to find a machine that is designed specifically for your product. This ensures accuracy, efficiency, and cost savings over time due to minimized waste and errors.
Reliability & Durability
Pharmaceutical machines are designed with reliability in mind. They are built with robust materials and constructed with precision engineering techniques that ensure optimal performance for many years. Because these machines are built for long-term use, they require less maintenance and repairs over time which helps reduce operational costs in the long run.
Safety & Hygiene Standards
The safety and hygiene standards of UK pharmaceutical packaging machinery are among the highest in the world. The stringent quality control measures employed by our manufacturers help ensure that all machines meet or exceed industry standards for safety and hygiene, ensuring that your products remain safe from contamination during processing.
In addition, these machines also come equipped with advanced safety features such as emergency stop buttons and sensors to provide an extra layer of protection against accidents or malfunctions during operation.
Speed of Response
Having a UK-based engineering team means that any issues that arise can be addressed and overcome swiftly. It’s the reason we have the largest team of engineers in the UK for any strapping company.
Having a dedicated service engineering team means we can respond quickly to call-outs and physically come and fix your machine, rather than having to troubleshoot over the phone.
Our Engineering Capabilities For Pharmaceutical Packaging Machines
The pharmaceutical industry is one that we have served for many years. We work closely with distributors and producers to find optimal solutions to their packaging needs.
A huge part of why we’ve been so successful, and worked with major corporations like GlaxoSmithKline, is our incredible service and engineering team. Our machines offer excellent output and are hugely reliable but, like any machine, there are times when things go wrong.
Which is why Gordian Strapping has 16 service engineers stationed across the country, ready to get your pharmaceutical packaging machine back up-and-running in quick time. They carry an array of spare parts in their van so can usually make the necessary repairs at the first time of asking.
We also have an internal spare parts team, so you can put preventative measures in place by having the replacements parts on-hand if things go wrong.
And before you’ve even got your machine in your factory, our in-house engineers can make any custom modifications to ensure it’s full specific to your businesses needs.
So it’s no wonder that Gordian Strapping is the number one in the UK for specialist end-of-line packaging machinery. We take pride in putting our customers first and our engineering capabilities is what sets us apart.
