KROMOPAK™ – the Perfect Packaging Solution for Actavis for 10 years

30.11.2013 - Customer Stories

Uncompromising supply security as well as optimum quality and service reliability are particularly essential in the pharmaceutical industry. As a result Actavis, one of the worldwide leading pharmaceutical companies, specialised in generics, is successfully using Kromopak™ (GC2) from Mayr-Melnhof Karton during more than a decade.

“For over 10 years, we are using Kromopak™ to produce our packaging. This fact alone speaks for this type of cartonboard and reflects our satisfaction with MMK”, says Mitko Shishkov, Head of Packaging at Actavis. The successful enhancement of Kromopak™ in the course of the rebuilt of the Slovenian Kolicevo mill at the end of 2011, whereby the basis weight could be reduced while maintaining the same stiffness, also met with high levels of enthusiasm: “The optimisation of Kromopak™ is not only visible on the technical data sheet. It was much more as we could noticeably improve the process”. 

Apart from the “impressive quality”, one thing is decisive for the long-term, excellent cooperation: “MMK’s committed service! This ensures a seamless production process.” As a result of the consistent quality and high level of service, Actavis has now also introduced Silvawhite™ (GC1) as a packaging solution for pharmaceutical packaging. 

The strategically advantageous geographical position of the MMK mills in the middle of Europe guarantees shortest transport routes with flexible delivery services, while ensuring continuously high quality by applying the most modern technology. Beyond that MMK’s technical customer service is available for technical queries and further application knowledge. The result: consistently high-quality chromo cartonboard, reliable delivery with short lead times and, as Actavis proves, very satisfied customers.

We are looking forward to your enquiries!
