14 | ghp Pharmaceutical Packaging & Manufacturing Awards 2016 Best Packaging Consulting Company - UK & Recognised Leaders in Green Industrial Packaging PP160006 Nefab’s packaging must not only protect high-value products, but must also meet rigorous health and safety regulations. As their customers’ product development and production often takes place in different parts of the world, it is a basic requirement that the same packaging solutions must be available at different locations and continents at the same time. Christopher Fuchs notes that Nefab have unique expertise in the analysis of supply chains in the medical equipment industry. “Our customers operate mainly in two areas: Imaging Systems and Medical Diagnostics and Patient Monitoring Systems. The first area consists of equipment such as X-ray machines, Computed Tomography (CT) scans, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scans, Nuclear Medicine Imaging equipment, Mammography scans and Ultrasound monitors. The Medical Diagnostics and Patient Monitoring Systems areas refers to products such as Cardiology and Radiology Systems, but also to care ports and patient monitors. “These fields exclusively contain high-value products and sensitive electronics, placing high demands on product protection. Formats are generally large, and since the products are often assembled and put into operation whilst still in their protective transport containers, the packaging must be made to fit in elevators and through doorways until it reaches the treatment room.” Nefab’s vision is to become the Global Partner for Complete Packaging Solutions, and their mission is to provide a packaging solution that saves more money than it costs. Christopher Fuchs outlines the various approaches to engineer the ideal packaging solution. “We regularly carry out packaging audits and have more than 120 dedicated packaging engineers globally, ensuring the highest levels of quality output from our organisation.
