Pilot Process engages in a way that enables the pharmaceutical company to have their own NPD department, or a complementary skillset added to their current packaging department. Pilot derives the ideal solution for the client’s primary packaging design through adapting their 4D implementation:
Innovation is a huge facet of the pharmaceutical industry and packaging has to maintain or even surpass drug development in order for the drug itself to launch into commercial phrase without other ‘variables’ affecting it (such as packaging).
Origin Pharma Packaging have a packaging design process in place that not only guarantees certification but also drives quality. The four stages that appear throughout the journey of the design, create opportunities to revise what has been delivered so far, to allow the client to make amends to its final outcome (saving on costly amends at the end of the process).
Origin Pharma Packaging are supporting companies in designing bespoke primary packaging that requires specifics assets, additionally the company are supporting companies who need to re-design current packaging assets, to become child resistant compliant with safety regulations and requirements or support companies that have migration issues with their closure designs.
Pilot understands your challenges and needs/ goals, by integrating itself into the client’s packaging department, supporting scientific departments who may have a keen interest in ingredients used within the packaging itself. Origin Pharma Packaging ensures that all key stakeholders are involved within the process and are kept up to date with every stage of the Pilot process.
Head of Marketing, Richard Quelch explains the impact Pilot is having on the pharmaceutical industry, “Origin Pharma Packaging has an ethos of inspire to innovate. We want not only the NPD team to be inspirational but to also be inspired by their clients primary packaging plans and pharmaceutical products. Over the past three years we have invested heavily into our NPD department in terms of personnel, infrastructure and processes”.
The NPD department has a full process which allows the pharmaceutical company to design the packaging required and have it printed through the Origin’s 3D printing service. This allows the client to make any specific amends and to have an actual physical copy of the design to evaluate, rather than working from visuals online. The 3D printing department are working with a number of major pharmaceutical companies who require fast turnaround times in packaging designs, to assist in ensuring increased speed to market for their product and packaging. In addition to this, pharma companies are using the service to test, mock-up packaging to establish whether the elements are viable before going to pilot stage of primary packaging production.
The Pilot process creates a partnership between Origin Pharma Packaging and the client, which supports the communication between both parties and also creates a strong foundation to debate on the design, to enable maximum (and optimised) return of the client’s packaging project.
“Origin Pharma Packaging prides itself on building long-term relationships which inspire both the client and the Origin brand. We drive change, which inevitably delivers innovation.” Richard Quelch, goes onto explains the NPD department are continually researching and travelling the globe to establish the next generation of pharmaceutical packaging, “Origin’s NPD department deliver open workshops with pharmaceutical companies to support their next generation packaging initiatives. The team travel the globe researching new packaging materials, packaging initiatives to ensure that they are market leading in their primary packaging innovations.”
The 4D approach is proving to be a huge success and is enabling the pharmaceutical industry to realise their packaging ambitions.
Origin have developed a series of interactive workshops for the CPhI international exhibition in Barcelona, which allows companies to come with their packaging concepts and projects and engage with the NPD department in real-time. The will be opportunity to map out the objectives of your packaging ideas and it will provide time to evaluate, gain feedback and where there are developments area to optimise your primary packaging project.
Origin Pharma Packaging will be exhibiting at CPhI Barcelona and will have an area dedicated to PILOT. There will be the NPD team present on the stand to answer any questions around new AND current primary packaging design projects.
