Pharma Packaging Solutions (PPS) is an arm of Carton Service, Inc., which has been operational since 1926.
PPS is a renowned folding carton company and turn-key contract packager that offers commercial packaging, heat sealers, stability services, product retain services, product launches and cold chain packaging to government agencies as well as healthcare and pharmaceutical companies.
Offering blister packaging, bottling, repackaging, kitting, folding carton production as well as ampule/vial and parenteral labelling, PPS is compliant with the FDA, DEA, as well as the MHRA.
It uses strict QA processes and cGMP quality systems to meet Serialization and GDUFA requirements. Recently, Pharma Packaging Solutions has announced that its new facility in Clinton, TN has become fully operational.
This new facility is located seven miles from the company’s previous TN location in Norris. It’s interesting to note here that the Norris facility of Carton Service, Inc. was initially spread across 48,000 square feet.
However, by 2012, it almost tripled its size, where just 7,000 square feet was dedicated to office space. The pharmaceutical division was rechristened in 2009 as Pharma Packaging Solutions.
This change of name was driven by an extensive client research and the need to convey its emphasis on serving an extremely regulated market through compliant operations.
With the new, 100% gated property at 341 JD Yarnell Industrial Parkway, PPS is set to strengthen its market position.
This facility will deploy the most up-to-date security systems and develop a “best practices” blueprint to help the company meet its compliance and sterilization goals.
With an improved facility layout and structure, coupled with better product flow, PPS expects new efficiencies. This expectation includes a 20% boost in primary packaging such as blister and bottle packaging, and a 25% augmentation in secondary packaging like kit assembly and repackaging.
Features of the New Facility of Pharma Packaging Solutions
The newly expanded site of Pharma Packaging Solutions includes an additional 10,000 square feet. This makes the total area equal to 110,000 square feet.
This new facility has a wash room and a QA sample room along with four new, clean rooms. All of these have been claimed to be “state-of-the-art” by Reid Lederer – the Company President.
Mr. Lederer said that the company has improved its contract packaging capabilities while maintaining its equipment, staff, standard operating procedures, tooling library and the procedures approved by the regulations.
He added further that Pharma Packaging Solutions is now equipped to provide repackaging, pharmaceutical bottling, kitting, blistering and much more to its clients – both in the government and commercial sectors. To read more such news, visit corporate the site.
