As part of its objective to reinforce its global competitive ability, Helvoet Pharma has changed its name to Datwyler Pharma Packaging, a division of the Datwyler Group, a Swiss company that is steeped in tradition and recognised worldwide. The former Helvoet Pharma customer base can be reassured that the name change will not have any detrimental impact on the actual manufacturing of goods. All products will continue to be made at the same sites and their quality will not be compromised.
As well as the name change, Helvoet Pharma has undergone major developments. Construction of its manufacturing plant in India is progressing according to plan, with the start-up operation scheduled for 2012. As part of an ongoing reinforcement of its presence in Asia, the company is reviewing alternatives to increase its manufacturing footprint throughout the continent.
This new phase of international expansion made it the ideal time to adopt the more globally applicable name of Datwyler Pharma Packaging, with a new, modern design. Doing so has tied Helvoet Pharma even more closely to the Dätwyler Group and increased its business activities under the unifying brand name. As a partner, customers will benefit from the increased stability and synergies, as well as from the innovative and financial power of a strong group, which achieved a €1bn turnover and employs 5,000 staff.
Datwyler's global quality management system meets the criteria of the strictest international standards, guaranteeing the highest confidence levels when it comes to product integrity and patient safety. The group's global customer and process-orientated quality management system is based on the strict global guidelines of ISO 9001 and of current Good Manufacturing Practices.
As such, it is well adapted to the manufacture of primary and secondary packaging materials for the most advanced domains of the parenteral pharmaceuticals market. Datwyler's Pregnana production facility recently obtained the ISO 15387 certificate.
The Datwyler Group's pharma packaging division is a leading supplier of primary and secondary packaging components (mainly rubber and aluminium) in the most advanced areas of the parenteral pharmaceutical market, with a specific focus on vaccines, diabetic care and biotechnology. Datwyler was founded in 1970 and is the world's number two in the parenteral pharmaceutical packaging market. The company is headquartered in Europe, with additional manufacturing facilities located throughout Europe, US and Asia, serving 14 billion parts every year to the industry.
For over four decades, the company has continued to build its reputation for reliability, high-quality products and customer support. As Datwyler, the company will continue the journey that Helvoet Pharma began. The name, brand and logo may be changing, but the promise to customers remains the same: a passion for excellence. Datwyler would like to thank its clients for their excellent cooperation and looks forward to continuing to supply high-quality pharmaceutical packing components and industry-leading services in order to optimise worldwide market success.
