Klöckner Pentaplast (kpfilms.com) will present the latest range of pharmaceutical packaging solutions and services at FCE Pharma May 10-12 in São Paulo, Brazil. Focusing on the company’s BlisterPro® XCEL suite of consulting, design, stability and prototyping services, visitors can learn about exemplary product launch processes and the steps necessary to attain prototype packaging in record time. Klöckner Pentaplast will also announce a new slitting line at the Cotia, Brazil, site.

BlisterPro XCEL services optimize the union of product and packaging. Protective barrier properties of the final package are predicted without the need for expensive and time-consuming line trials. Months of design, testing and feedback can now, in many cases, be accomplished in weeks.

Based at the first kp i.center, located in Charlottesville, VA, the expanded BlisterPro XCEL suite of design services offers a collaborative space specifically designed to help global customers bring products to market more quickly and economically. Since opening in March 2015, the kp i.center has been the hub of creation for more than 20 major pharma brands, leading to 50-plus innovative packaging solutions and design advancements.

“Klöckner Pentaplast is pleased to announce that by mid-June 2016, the company will further invest in the region by adding its fourth slitting line, which will increase the current Cotia, Brazil, site’s slitting capacity by ~4.000 tons/year. By bringing to the area the newest technology available worldwide, Klöckner Pentaplast expects to continue leveraging technology and automation throughout its entire production process. The investment plan is an integral part of KP’s strategy and will allow us to continuously be market driven and closely aligned with our customers’ growth expectations,” says Mr. Kleber Romualdo da Silva, managing director, Klöckner Pentaplast do Brasil Ltda.
