SCHOTT KAISHA, India's leading pharma packaging company, has completed half a decade of successful partnership. Building on its success, the company inaugurated India's first fully automated pharmaceutical packaging plant in February 2013 in Jambusar, Gujarat. This Greenfield facility, set up with an initial investment of 20 million Euros (136 crores INR), helped SCHOTT KAISHA to increase its production capacity by almost 50 percent to around 2.4 billion pieces per year.
With the first module nearing its full capacity by January 2014, the company is looking to further expand the production facility and hire over a 100 people, bringing the total figure to more than 1700. The facility is housed in an area of 20 acres with ample room to construct additional production modules in parallel with the increasing demand of customers.
"We are happy to have met highest demands of quality and supply with maximum customer satisfaction. We remain committed to help our customers achieve their own growth and quality objectives in India as well as abroad." says Mr Kairus Dadachanji, managing director of SCHOTT KAISHA.
In the last five years, SCHOTT KAISHA has been awarded ISO 9001, ISO 14000-18000 and ISO 15378 certificates. In addition, SCHOTT KAISHA has successfully set up an independent tool room with highly specialized Computer Numerical Machines (CNC) that enable a even more precise dimensional control.
"Due to our strong focus on quality, based on SCHOTT's more than one hundred years of experience, we retain state of the art equipment and a highly skilled workforce dedicated to quality control and inspection. Maintaining consistent global standards in all our facilities worldwide helps us to offer tailor-made products and services for growing international pharmaceutical markets such as India," says Dr Jürgen Sackhoff, executive vice president of SCHOTT Pharmaceutical Systems.
