AstraZeneca moves wallet packing equipment into new facility.

AstraZeneca is one of the biggest pharmaceutical companies in the world. This Swedish company, with a large Research and Development facility in Gothenburg, started using Ecobliss Cold Seal technology for their clinical trial wallet packing in 2004. For assembling and sealing the wallets AstraZeneca invested in an Ecobliss Speedpress ESP-A2 machine. This linear machine is designed and manufactured for fully or semi-automatic assembly and sealing of Cold Seal style packaging.

With the completion of a brand new – state of the art – clinical trial facility, the ESP-A2 machine needed to be relocated internally from the original facility to it’s new location. In April of 2009 this was realised in a successful joint effort between AstraZeneca and Ecobliss. Ecobliss looked after the disassembly, reassembly and testing of the machine, where Astra Zeneca took care of the internal transportation of the machine components.
