Pharmaceuticals specialist CST Pharma has boosted its productivity after taking on a Herzog+Heyman (H+H) pocket folding unit, transfer unit and vertical delivery unit.

Purchased from Friedheim International, the machine was installed at the Walsall, West Midlands-based company’s facility in July. Its existing folder required manual folds, which it said had been slowing down production as staff had to make these folds manually.

“In order to improve our efficiency, we required a solution to remove the manual processes and speed up our production output,” said CST Pharma assistant general manager and print production manager Lee Adkins.

“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.”

Adkins also praised Friedheim International for its “professional and reliable service”, from the first enquiry to installation.

“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.”

CST Pharma imports and exports branded pharmaceuticals, generic medicines, medical appliances, clinical dressings, diagnostics, nutritional drinks, and unlicensed medicines.
