Who are you looking to meet at Medtec Europe?
Medical device manufacturers, engineers, pharmaceutical companies looking to package their products.
What is your history with the show?
We have exhibited at Medtec Europe for as long as it has been around. We have always had a booth or stand.
What is, in your opinion, the most exciting developments in the industry at the moment?
Exciting might be the wrong word here, but in general, there is an increased focus on clean packaging and low particulate in the industry, and a continued trend to low risk packaging in general. When we say low risk packaging, we mean wide sealing windows with supportive data related to aging and sterilization. (More robust data packages are needed than in the past.) The industry is also looking for excellent performance characteristics in relation to sterilization and transportation with consistent performance regardless of temperature, pressure, or dwell time. A lot of focus is around demonstrating a robust sterile barrier system that maintains sterility to the point of use.
Where do you place your company in the development of the industry?
From our founding more than one century ago, to our position today as a global leader in flexible medical packaging, the OliverTM legacy is one of product innovation, technical expertise, strong customer focus, and an unwavering commitment to quality & excellence.
