St. Gallen, November 8, 2013 – The international technology group SCHOTT intends to achieve further growth in the field of prefillable syringes. Dr. Jürgen Sackhoff, Executive Vice President of SCHOTT Pharmaceutical Systems, underscores the group’s commitment to provide pharmaceutical companies with best-in-class solutions when he says: “It has always been our strategy to engage in an open dialogue with our customers. Integrating with their processes enables us to find the best solution. Customers can rest assured that we will round off our full portfolio with further innovations in the future.” To highlight SCHOTT’s commitment, especially in the area of prefillable glass syringes, the company launched a new brand to resonate this new vision. All glass syringes are now to be marketed under the umbrella of the new brand name syriQ(TM).

SCHOTT has been manufacturing glass and polymer syringes in Europe and the US for more than 12 years. The production facility in St. Gallen, Switzerland, has developed into a center of excellence and is supported by an R&D team based at the site. A large annual production capacity ensures security of supply – with infrastructure available for further expansion. Just recently, SCHOTT doubled its production capacities for TopPac polymer syringes.

To offer pharmaceutical companies a broad range of solutions, SCHOTT has a complete portfolio of both glass and polymer syringes. In the field of glass syringes, the offerings range from 0.5 to 3 Milliliter (ml) products, suitable for a broad variety of applications like heparin, vaccines, biotech, and special applications.
