CST Pharma finds the cure with H+H Pocket Folding Unit

Walsall based pharmaceuticals specialist CST Pharma has revealed its purchase of a H+H Pocket Folding Unit, Transfer Unit and Vertical Delivery Unit has helped it significantly increase productivity.

Purchased from leading finishing solutions provider Friedheim International, the machine was installed at CST Pharma’s facility in the West Midlands in July and has quickly become a core part of the company’s production setup.
CST Pharma is a leader parallel importer and parallel exporter of branded pharmaceuticals, generic medicines, medical appliances, clinical dressings, diagnostics, nutritional drinks and unlicensed medicines, and as such, production efficiency is of critical importance, especially given the events of the past 18 months.

The company’s existing folding solution required manual folds and this had been slowing down production as staff had to make these folds manually. The company was keen to eliminate this manual process from its production and approached Friedheim International for advice.

“In order to improve our efficiency, we required a solution to remove the manual processes and speed up our production output,” CST Pharma’s Assistant General Manager and Print Production Manager Lee Adkins said.
“After spending hours searching and researching folding machines across the market, H+H looked like the leading specialists in small sized leaflet folding machines and the high quality machinery on offer looked far superior to any others available on the market.

“As well as looking the part, this new folding solution has helped to increase productivity throughout our production processes, which will in turn give us the opportunity to meet deadlines faster and eliminate manual processes that were previously required.”

Lee Adkins was also keen to pay tribute to the role Friedheim International played in both the purchase and installation of the machine, saying it was a pleasure to work with the team.

“From the first enquiry to installation, Friedheim International offered a professional and reliable service,” Lee Adkins said. “No query was too much trouble; from multiple emails on leaflet sizes and machine specifications, to organisation of logistics and site survey to full installation and training on site, it was a pleasure dealing with Friedheim.
“I would 100% recommend Friedheim to any business looking for the same solution in the future.”
