Do you have very specific requirements for the packaging of your product and your own ideas? Whether it is a certain barrier, a special application or an innovative decorative feature, (almost) everything is possible. Together, we can develop your tailor made solution – from the idea of the tube applicator, the material and decorative features, right up to mass-production.
We are delighted to have received numerous awards in recent years for our own developments and customer references. They are a wonderful confirmation of our work at the highest level. Our most recent award: PHARMAPACK Award 2018 for the Voltaren No Mess Tube from GSK. Further successes include the ETMA Award 2017 for the "Stylo™ tube" in the "Prototype" category and the ETMA Award 2017 for "Bravecto" in the "Laminate Tubes" category, a single-serving tube for animal healthcare with a wing cap.
As a leading manufacturer of primary packaging, we follow a consistent quality policy and align ourselves with the needs of our customers. We continuously optimize systems and processes to ensure the highest product quality in the future, too. Methods such as the Annual Product Review (APR) or Balanced Score Card (BSC) provide the necessary foundations for this. All materials are clearly defined as pharmaceutical or food compliant and meet the regulatory requirements of REACH, the EU’s food legislation and the FDA. We adhere to the U.S. Drug Master File for our pharmaceutical specifications. We observe the guidelines of the Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and produce in clean rooms according to ISO 14644 class 8/9.
The design of a tube is often a contributor to the consumer's final decision to buy when faced with competition. To ensure that your product gets into the consumer's shopping basket, we can support you in the following areas:
In our own laboratory, we can carry out tube production tests and help you when choosing colors and effects:
The packaging and transport of tubes is challenging. The use of the right packaging units and stable materials means that loading, filling and sealing is as easy as possible for you. We look for packaging with low material consumption. And we offer special secondary packaging for subsequent tube sterilization.
We regularly exchange with manufacturers of tube filling and sealing machines. In our database, we have stored the system-specific parameters for the optimal end-welding of all tube materials.

Manufacturing our products is associated with costs and emissions. We save natural resources by optimizing the supply chain, our manufacturing processes and the lifecycle of our packaging. We want to know what impact our business has on the environment and what we can do to protect the environment to the best of our ability. Here are some examples:
All our paints and coatings are UV-resistant and therefore low in solvents.
All our pallets are exclusively (non-chemically) heat-treated. The wood used comes from Switzerland. 71 % of all pallets are reusable.
Our locations in the center of Europe result in short transportation distances to and from our business partners.
34 % of our energy comes from hydroelectric power.
Our cardboard packaging for tubes comprises up to 66 % recycled material.
In the last ten years, we have halved our water consumption through the installation of a central treatment plant.
Through the use of tablets in our production process, we are saving more than 500 kilos of paper every year.
85 % of our production waste is sorted and recycled. 15 % of waste is thermally recycled (energy recovery).
By connecting to a pellet heating system in 2014, Neopac has lowered its CO2 emissions by 720 tons per year.
