Sharp Packaging Solutions Announces Upcoming Joint Venture

Written by PR Wire Services. Posted in Business

Pouches

own, PA – October 30, 2013 – Sharp Packaging Solutions has been providing its clients with packaging solutions for seven years and is pleased to announce plans for a new venture in which Sharp will partner with a long-time client.

Sharp and its partnering company will work together on packaging thin film materials, and though the customer has not yet been named, details about the team’s plans are available. The partner will invest $1 million into the venture for three years and provide a machine to cut thin film products to a specific size and shape before sandwiching them between foil material for an air-tight seal. It is expected that by the end of the third year, the machine will have produced around 20 million units a year.

Currently Sharp Packaging Solutions and its client partner are waiting on legal and supply agreements for review in order to determine liabilities and commitments and are also waiting to approve a capital appropriation request document which will outline background, business case, the amount requested, and ROI calculations. At this time, Sharp Packaging is planning to close the deal within 30 days.

As a result of this venture, Sharp Packaging Solutions is expecting to expand its offerings, increasing both the amount and quality of services available to its customers. Coming around the same time as a new serialization initiative and the launch of Sharp Packaging’s new website, this major update is part of a major leap forward for the company.

Sharp Packaging Solutions is located at 7451 Keebler Way in Allentown, PA. To learn more about Sharp Packaging Solutions and its new business venture, visit www.sharpservices.com.

Pouches

Sharp Packaging Solutions has been providing unique packaging solutions to pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry leaders for seven years. We had a chance to sit down with Client Development and Relationship Manager Bob Macadangdang to talk about the company’s success.

Mr. Macadangdang, could you please share with us a little about what Sharp Packaging Solutions does?

Sharp Packaging Services is a global leader in contract packaging. Working from our state-of-the-art facilities across the United States and Europe, we provide unique and often complex commercial and clinical packaging solutions to the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry. We’ve built an international reputation for delivering cost-effective blister packaging, bottling, pouches and stick packs, compliance packaging, formulation and manufacturing services, label design and printing.

Your industry sounds like a fairly specialized one. How do you make sure you’re found by companies who need your services?

We market through websites, magazine advertisements, and trade shows.

You mentioned marketing through websites. How has technology and increased connectivity changed the way you market Sharp Packaging Services?

Technology has put us on a different level from our competitors. The internet has definitely exposed our company to general public and we are getting more and more business leads. However, the conversion rate is still not where we would like it to be, but it definitely puts us in the hunt for new business.

Do you have particular goals for the future growth of your business?

We’d like to see consistent double-digit percentage growth every year.

The smallest tubing is red and .209 inches in diameter at its smallest point while the largest tubing is white and a full inch at its smallest point. Each size is designed to fit several ranges and irregular shapes and is sold in rolls of 100 and 50 feet so that tubing can be cut to any length. Alliance Express’ new flexible silicone star tubing is typically used for such projects as powder coating, e-coating, anodizing, plating, wet painting, or sand blasting.

Alliance Express is a distributor of protection and finishing products for a wide range of industries and applications. Its membership with the National Fluid Power Association and Mid-Atlantic Fastener Distributors Association demonstrate the company’s commitment to its industry and to great service.
