Platforms and production competence

“Platforms & Operational Excellence” stands for our platform approach as well as for the claim to continuously optimise our processes in order to further expand our cost leadership while continuing to maintain a high level of quality. As an experienced developer and manufacturer of injection and infusion systems, we offer our customers significant advantages in the development, project and commercialisation phases: our proven platform strategy enables us to achieve short implementation times for customer projects. We support pharmaceutical and biotech companies worldwide in providing their medicinal products in a timely manner for clinical trials of systems for self-injection and then using these to commercialise them more quickly. We base the customer-specific requirements on production processes which have already been established, industrialised and proven.

As an independent manufacturer, we are also able to serve smaller customer orders or start-up companies due to our flexibility in production. In this way, we make a significant contribution to the treatment of rare diseases with small patient numbers.

We continuously optimise our work processes and strive to further expand our cost leadership in this way. To achieve this, we operate according to the principles of lean management. This means that we continuously review all process steps to determine whether they add value and offer customer benefits. If this is not the case, we replace them with more efficient processes or eliminate them completely. Due to our high level of productivity and our reliable quality, we are able to further develop our workplaces in Switzerland and Germany. We create qualified jobs locally and this makes us successful in the face of international competition.

In the area of production in particular, we have streamlined the workflows and processes of our well-proven product manufacturing capabilities – without any compromises to our high quality standards. As a result, we reduce rejects, shorten the supply chains and lead times, and thus improve our profitability.
