History of Origin Pharma Packaging

Origin was established over 50 years ago, based out of our dedicated Pharmaceutical Packaging, Logistics & Innovation Centre. Origin, design, manufacture pharmaceutical packaging and partner with licence holders and CMOs.

The critical outcomes of compliant and effective packaging continually remind us of the importance of a consistent and integrated approach to our work. As a sponsor of the pharmaceutical supply chain, complementing the colossal impact of Life Science companies worldwide, our close relationship with drug manufacturers, healthcare institutions and consumers alike gives perpetual clarity to our key deliverables.

Since our inception in 1963 when Stanley Holmes left his pharmacist career to improve the availability of drugs packaging to the environment he left, our focus has been continually refined to support the creation of entirely effective packaging solutions underpinned by a robust supply chain and outstanding client services activity.

When delivering each healthcare packaging project - whether a new product development or a bespoke supply chain solution - our proposals concentrate on innovation, assurance of supply, quality, cost, and flexibility. All key attributes of the solution our clients deserve.
