Frankfurt, 15 June 2015 - ACHEMA 2015: Efficient in containment - dustproof becomes new standard

Product, environmental and occupational safety requirements are increasing for pharmaceutical producers because of new trends in active ingredients and regulatory changes.

Frankfurt, 15 June 2015 - ACHEMA 2015: Simple and safe tool handling with Fette Compacting's new TRI.EASY case system

Düsseldorf, May 12, 2011 - Tomorrow’s pharmaceutical production: efficient, holistic, global

The global pharmaceutical market is facing fundamental changes. While during the boom times companies were mainly concerned with growing faster than their competitors, recent years have been characterized primarily by enormous price pressures. The future is also anything but rosy. Higher costs for the development and production of blockbusters, competition from pharmaceutical companies that produce in low-wage countries and competition from producers of generic drugs are the most important drivers of this development. The latest forecasts in IMS Market Prognosis also confirm that the era of unbridled growth is over.
