k Pharmaceutical Packaging | Packaging Material Manufacturer

Pharmaceutical Grade Packaging Supplier


Those operating in the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry have to get prescription and over-the-counter drugs to consumers safely. Depending on the product, protecting merchandise might involve shielding goods from moisture, air and light exposure to prevent contamination. Finding the materials to store or transport shipments safely requires high standards and attention to detail, so partnering with a trustworthy pharmaceutical packaging company is the best way to bring products to market.

Caltex Plastics specializes in the creation of custom bags, tubing, pouches, sheeting and more. Being in business for over 35 years, our professionals have the knowledge, training and experience to draw up a tailored plan for your production needs. Ensure medications, tablets, capsules and other pharmaceuticals get to where they need to be without fear of damage.

The Importance of Pharmaceutical Packaging

Pharmaceutical corporations must abide by guidelines set by the FDA. The type of product you manufacture will determine what type of primary or secondary packaging is in order to prevent units from making contact with environmental elements. Choosing plastic materials with the right features will protect your investments from impact damages, sudden temperature changes, UV exposure and factors that interfere with the quality of a medication.

Working with a pharmaceutical packaging supplier like Caltex Plastics lets you develop a tailored solution for your packaging needs. Our staff listens to the details of your production project to come up with cost-friendly methods that assist with the following:

  • Drug containment: Bundle units together in a way that reduces the chance of product loss.
  • Prolonging shelf-life: Help products reach their destination ready for immediate placement on sales floors.
  • Informing consumers: Caltex Plastics will encase pharmaceuticals so that labels and dosing information are easily legible.
