The Grand Rapids Business Journal published an article in the June 26th edition detailing some of the recent success that PCL has had as we continue to grow! Check it out at the article here:
The rise in the pharmaceutical and medical device packaging industry has been increasing over the past few years. In 2015, revenue from pharmaceuticals and medical devices reached $1.1 trillion and $350 billion, respectively. This increase in global demand is due to a jump in the use of pharmaceutical and medical devices, the rising middle class, and an aging population. By 2020, the population of those 65+ will surpass the number of children under five years old.
Our customers have spoken, and PCL listened.
At PCL, we routinely specify, purchase, install and validate medical pouch sealers of all technologies and brands. These activities are either performed at the client’s manufacturing facility where we roll up our sleeves, get our hands greasy, install the sealer, and then train the local engineering team how to use it. Or we temporarily install sealers in our lab for initial de-bugging and optimization before sending them to our client for permanent installation. We have learned a lot through these experiences and want to share some best practices that may be helpful on your next project.
