February 9, 2015, Paris, France and Millville, NJ – WHEATON today cited its growing role as a supplier of high quality, purpose-built packaging solutions for the global pharmaceutical industry as it prepares for its debut participation in PharmaPack Europe 2015.
 
“Many in the pharmaceutical industry know us as a U.S.-based company with a proud 125-year history of developing and manufacturing purpose-built packaging solutions for pharmaceutical and other life sciences customers,” noted Wayne L. Brinster, CEO and President of WHEATON. “In our upcoming debut at PharmaPack Europe 2015, we also are highlighting our major facility in the UK that, along with other facilities around the globe, supplies a wide variety of specialty glass products and solutions to pharmaceutical customers in Europe, North America, Asia and many other countries. To support our global business, we have built an extensive supply chain management system designed to optimize products and services to our pharma customers worldwide, which is especially important when supporting customers looking to standardize their products globally”
 
Mr. Brinster continued, “Our long-standing commitment to deliver the highest quality and our ongoing campaign to incorporate purpose-built features throughout our product line make WHEATON’s packaging solutions especially suitable for the demanding, highly regulated and efficiency-oriented global pharmaceutical industry. We are continuing to expand our Premium Services, as we harness our decades of packaging and project management expertise to customize products for specific customer needs, and we also are growing our Development Services team that facilitates new product development and ongoing commercial supply for our growing customer base around the globe.”
 
WHEATON offers an extensive materials and product portfolio. Its expertise in glass and plastic containers coupled with a wide selection of closure systems can ensure the secure delivery of the most sensitive materials. An example of the purpose-built packaging solutions WHEATON is featuring at PharmaPack Europe is its patented line of High Recovery Vials, with a unique design that makes it easy to reduce the costly waste from near-irretrievable contents by up to 99%. The revolutionary interior bottom design of the High Recovery Vials provides greater ease of manual or automated handling and increased product recovery. They are especially useful for high value contents, reducing product waste and enabling full retrieval without the need to overfill.
 
“Given the rapidly accelerating advances across all major scientific initiatives today, the importance of creating and implementing industry standards for optimal sample storage and retrieval has never been greater”, said John A. McCarthy, Jr, CryoXtract CEO. “Our co-marketing agreement with WHEATON produces a unique and important solution for standardizing frozen tissue storage and enabling the scientific community to access and re-access frozen tissue samples for critical research and development.”
