TEQ steps up manufacture of medical packaging

THERMOFORMER specialist TEQ has announced it is continuing to deliver a range of medical packaging solutions for customers working to address health needs related to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Many of TEQ’s medical technology customers have ‘Essential Business’ status.

With production in full flow, TEQ said it can provide a shorter supply chain, with all packaging products coming from its cleanrooms in both the UK and Poland.

“We’re proud to be playing a key role in making sure essential medical products reach the market in these uncertain times,” said Anne-Sophie Belamine, TEQ’s European sales director.

“Our production facilities in the UK and Europe are working around the clock to ensure we support our customers close to home, many of which are manufacturing life-saving medical supplies and technologies as we respond to this global pandemic.”

TEQ’s packaging range includes procedure sets, trays, tubs, lids and sterile barrier blisters and seal blisters. The company also manufactures thermoformed handling trays, including dry powder inhalers, auto-injectors, injection-moulded components, pre-filled syringes and pharmaceutical bottles.

TEQ was recently acquired by Sonoco and has rebranded its business, having previously been known as Plastique across Europe, and TEQ Thermoform Engineered Quality more widely.
