Romaco Pharmatechnik welcomes the Industry Committee

Karlsruhe Chamber of Commerce visits Romaco

The Industry Committee of Karlsruhe Chamber of Commerce convened at Romaco Pharmatechnik GmbH on 9 March for its first meeting in 2017. With more than 30 people attending, interest in the event was considerable.

More than 30 Industry Committee members representing Karlsruhe Chamber of Commerce accepted the invitation to the first Assembly meeting of the year on 9 March 2017. The event was held at the headquarters of Romaco Pharmatechnik GmbH on the Breit industrial estate in Karlsruhe’s Durlach district. The Industry Committee is a Karlsruhe Chamber of Commerce body which is currently comprised of about 60 members drawn from the top management level of various Chamber companies in the Karlsruhe area. It convenes three times a year, with meetings hosted on a rotating basis. Managing directors and senior executives take advantage of this regular platform to exchange ideas and opinions on current issues in a dialogue across multiple industries.

Justinus Pieper, the Berlin historian, spoke at Romaco on “Leadership strategies for senior management in industry – the lessons of history”. Next on the agenda was a presentation by committee member and host Carsten Strenger, COO/CFO of Romaco Pharmatechnik GmbH, followed by a tour of the plant, where packaging solutions for the pharmaceutical industry are manufactured. While visiting the engineering supplier’s production and assembly shops, attendees gained a brief insight into blister and strip packaging technologies for pharmaceutical products. The diverse stations of a tablet on its way into the blister, and subsequently the carton, were explained by Strenger during a live demonstration of the Romaco Noack 960 blister line.

The Noack, Siebler and Bosspak product lines are manufactured at the Romaco Pharmatechnik GmbH facility in Karlsruhe. The portfolio of these three brands comprises technologies for the primary packaging of pharmaceutical solids in blisters, strips, tubes and bottles. Machines built by Romaco are meanwhile in action around the globe. “Against the background of our international client base and an export rate of more than 90 percent, ensuring that Romaco is optimally integrated in the Karlsruhe technology region is a matter particularly close to my heart”, Strenger emphasised. “We are delighted that so many people have turned up today and that the members of the Karlsruhe Chamber of Commerce Industry Committee have displayed such an interest in Romaco technologies.”
