“With our unparalleled history of expertise in processing OSDs, from pills to pellets to MUPS, and our tried and tested technologies, I am convinced that we can continue to help our customers to get their products to market faster in a cost-effective way,” stated Marcus Michel, Head of APC Pharma.

“The new center offers a wealth of opportunity for us and for our clients. From cost assurance and process optimization to real-life simulations and test and loan machines, we provide a unique range of services that are designed to enhance production and expedite time to market. Your needs are critical and individual; our worldwide test centers have been created to meet those needs,” he added.

GEA’s centers of excellence provide access to a full range of test facilities and teams of experts, all of whom work closely with the company’s customers to optimize procedures and evaluate their products, enabling them to achieve their process and production goals.

No other supplier offers such a comprehensive portfolio of tableting technologies, from powder handling to granulating, drying, compression, coating and packaging, including the first ever continuous high shear granulation, drying and tableting system, which is set to revolutionize OSD processing.
