Contamination in medical products isn’t just a deal breaker, it can actually destroy a business overnight!
That’s why you should be extremely picky when it comes to choosing your medical packaging manufacturer…
Or else risk enduring PR nightmare, people suing, and the long-winded legal process that will leave a bad taste in your mouth even months after!
In this article, we’ve broken down a very basic list of things you should look for in a medical packaging manufacturer
Medical packaging has applications in pharmaceuticals, food additives, pesticides and chemicals to name a few. There are many types of medical packaging including primary packages (e.g. bottles), secondary packaging (eg blister packs) or tertiary packaging (e.g. shipping boxes).
The five points that every prospective buyer should consider when selecting a manufacturer are:
Expertise in the industry
The key here is to s elect a company who knows medical packaging inside out, rather than somebody who has made the transition from general packaging. This means they will know how to avoid OOS (Out of Specification) situations that could lead to recalls or other costly problems for their customers.
The best medical packaging manufacturers will have this certification which is the globally recognized standard for Quality Management Systems across all industries. It ensures that manufacturer has effective practices in place to ensure product quality, safety, and effectiveness.
No reputable company will refuse to supply you with references, so ask for them.
Look for medical packaging manufacturers that have a perfect or near perfect on-time delivery record with their customers.
