Jones Healthcare Group expanded bottling capabilities with the investment in a new, fully integrated Uhlmann bottle line, enhancing its multi-level service offering across all package formats for healthcare clients. The new bottle line will be installed at the company’s facility in Brampton, ON, Canada and is anticipated to be operational mid-next year.
The Uhlmann bottle line features filling speeds up to 150 bottles per minute, 100% counting accuracy using Cremer technology, and a complete inspection and rejection system for all critical quality parameters. The line accommodates multiple bottle shapes, sizes and construction, with integrated cartoning and bundling technology for maximum efficiency. The company’s bottling capabilities will also comply with the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA).
“Our investments are driven by customer and market demand for flexible, innovative and full-service packaging services that align with global regulatory requirements,” said Marty Quesnel, Senior Vice President – Packaging Services at Jones. “Our new bottling capabilities complement our blistering, pouching, convenience vial filling and secondary packaging services, as well as our full serialization and aggregation solution for prescription medicines.”
