Mainz, February 23, 2013 – The international technology group SCHOTT has been documenting and publishing technical terms of supply for its glass tubing for use in pharmaceutical applications for 25 years now. In fact, SCHOTT became the first company in the industry to provide its customers with exact specifications of the most important product parameters in 1988. Since then, the ongoing improvements that have been made to its special glass tubing used to produce vials, syringes, cartridges and ampoules have been anchored in its terms of supply and thus made visible for its customers. SCHOTT constantly strives to make improvements that flow into its quality standards to accommodate changing market demands, the needs of its customers and its own goal of providing its customers with maximum benefits. A revised version of its technical delivery specifications is published about every three years.

“At SCHOTT Tubing, we have been setting the standards on manufacturing glass tubing for 25 years with our technical terms of supply. This means we are committed to constantly improving our production process and offer our customers the highest possible transparency and quality assurance,” says Jürgen Achatz, Global Sales Director for Pharmaceutical Tubing at SCHOTT.

In addition to a description of the products in which all of the characteristics of relevance to its customers are defined in great detail, the technical delivery specifications also include precisely determined tolerance ranges. SCHOTT’s delivery specifications differ from its competitors’ technical terms of delivery not only in terms of their vast depth of detail and clarity. The company also subjects its specification to further review by the Federal Association of the German Glass Industry. The specialized group “Primary Packaging” discusses and evaluates the company’s standards, whereby the results flow directly into the final version of the delivery specifications.
