Huge pharma order places the accent on the tactile
Ditone Labels, part of Clondalkin’s specialist packaging division, has won an order to produce 20 million Braille labels over the next two years for Aspar, a manufacturer of analgesic products. The contract includes the production of three million of Ditone’s Extensia leaflet/labels each year.
Based in Cambridgeshire, England, Ditone was required to undergo an audit to meet the requirements of the pharmacies and supermarkets served by Aspar. Ditone Sales Manager John Haworth said that the company’s work on pharmaceutical and Braille packaging meant it had all the processes in place to help Aspar meet its labeling objectives.
• Ditone’s parent has continued its international expansion by acquiring Cartonplex, a pharmaceutical packaging manufacturer based in Barcelona, Spain. Cartonplex produces folding cartons for the pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors. It represents Clondalkin’s fourth acquisition for 2007. In April, it bought pharmaceutical labelling specialist Kenilworth Products. This was followed in the summer wth the purchase of pharmaceutical packaging firm Keller Crescent and flexible packaging manufacturer Direct Plastics.
