In the current economic situation, companies are seeking to optimize the costs of their operations. To enhance business efficiency and streamline processes, outsourcing of contract packaging services for medicinal products and medical devices comes to the rescue. Companies like Prespack, known as CPOs (Contract Packaging Organizations), provide comprehensive services tailored to companies in the pharmaceutical sector. This contributes to reducing workload and resource requirements on the manufacturer's side.
What is outsourcing of contract packaging?
Contract packaging outsourcing involves entrusting tasks related to the packaging process of medicinal products and medical devices to an external company specializing in packaging services. Such companies possess the necessary permits and certifications, ensuring compliance with rigorous regulatory standards
Outsourcing part of production processes to external companies has been common in the pharmaceutical industry for many years. Pharmaceutical companies often "outsource" contract packaging to reduce costs in areas such as logistics, storage, labeling, serialization and aggregation.
Secondary contract packaging outsourcing at Prespack entails providing comprehensive support to pharmaceutical entities. We operate under a Manufacturing License for Medicinal Products and a GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) Certificate issued by the Chief Pharmaceutical Inspectorate. For our partners, we offer packaging services for medicinal products and medical devices, including products containing psychotropic substances. We assemble medical kits, we make serialization and aggregation, handle labeling and sealing, and store products under controlled conditions of +2°C to +8°C. Our own printing house further enhance our capabilities, relieving our partners of concerns in this aspect.
So, it's not just about transporting products from point A to point B, ensuring proper labeling, and sending them to their intended destinations. When you choose contract packaging services at Prespack, you gain a multifaceted partnership.

For whom is contract packaging outsourcing?
Outsourcing is a suitable solution for companies focused on growth and seeking efficient project management. For many years, we have been providing specialized contract packaging, serialization and aggregation services for medicinal products, products containing psychotropic substances, and other products requiring cold chain storage. We understand how to optimize processes to consistently deliver the highest quality in the services we provide
Our services are most commonly choosed by manufacturers of medicinal products and medical devices, parallel importers and distributors who wish to concentrate on sales while entrusting packaging processes to external experts.
In the case of medicinal product and medical device manufacturers, we frequently support our business partners by contractually packaging batches of products for smaller markets. This allows them to focus on the production of the item, delivering it to us and we handle the packaging for the target markets. Recognizing that repackaging small batches of pharmaceutical products internally is not cost-effective for larger companies, we willingly undertake this task through outsourcing.
Additionally, when a company specializes in dietary supplements but also offers medicinal products requiring serialization, they entrust us with this process. The equipment, training and maintenance necessary for this process are costly, which is why we provide serialization and aggregation services to our partners.
Another frequently used service by pharmaceutical companies is assembling, which involves putting together medical kits. This process entails combining various components into a cohesive unit. Typically, clients provide us with the components and we comprehensively handle subsequent stages, including providing packaging, labels, and assembling all elements into a complete kit. In the pharmaceutical industry, this process involves combining different components, such as medicinal products in syringes, medical devices in tubes, patches, lancets, disinfectant wipes, as well as packaging and leaflets, to create comprehensive products for the market.
Depending on the product, the contract packaging process is always customized in collaboration with our partner. This requires discussion of many important aspects, but thanks to the knowledge and experience of our team, we provide professional support at every stage.
