Goldprint nv/sa Crash-Lock Cartons, Pharmaceutical Packaging Leaflets
Goldprint, founded in 1976, specialized in the production of printed packaging for the healthcare industry. Located on the ring around Brussels, our factory employees 90 highly skilled people on state of the art equipment. The product range covers folding cartons, patient leaflets on thin, bible paper (mostly folded), labels, aluminum for blisters, coldform, sachets, stick packs, foils and laminates.
We deliver throughout Europe either directly or through our Copaharm Europe partnership. ISO 9002 and ISO 14001, we produce according the GMP rules of the pharmaceutical industry. The recent acquisition of a digital line to produce folding crash-lock cartons gives us a competitive edge in terms of flexibility, leadtimes and cost for small jobs.
On top of classical ECMA folding cartons, Goldprint has developed special skills to manufacture crash-lock cartons even in very small sizes. Our special gluing lines allow us to go down to sizes as small as 80x30x30mm.
Folding cartons with separation, chicanes, or combinations of leaflet glued inside the carton are also produced on regular basis. If you want to protect your packaging against counterfeiting, we offer a full range of solutions from very simple and cheap slight changes in the design up to very sophisticated systems like drip-off varnish, reactive ink or a unique intelligent code.
Blister Packaging Design and Development
Aluminium foil for pharmaceutical blisters is very often ordered in very small quantities because the lot/batch nr and the expiration date change every time. Goldprint is experienced in blister packaging design and development from initial ideas or artwork to the finished product.
Goldprint has the ideal equipment to produce these small batches of 1.000 to 25.000 meter in small width. Very cheap clichés, lead times of just a couple of days and a permanent stock of 20µ aluminium in widths between 100 and 300mm give us a real competitive edge.
Pharmaceutical Packaging Leaflet
Goldprint designs and produces all types of leaflets: flat or pre-folded, outserts and inserts, but small fold leaflets are definitely the niche in which we excel. We supply a wide range of pharmaceutical packaging leaflets and labels.
We have eleven folding machines able to make concertina or parallel folds as small as 20mm. Three machines to produce cross-folded or even double cross-folded leaflets give us the capacity to fold virtually any type of leaflet on thin paper (40 and 50 gsm).
Pharmaceutical Packaging Supplies
Goldprint is first of all a manufacturer of printed packaging for the healthcare and welfare industries, but on top of it, we are an agent (Benelux ) for two producers of pharmaceutical packaging supplies: Capsulit, an Italian manufacturer of all types of closures and capsules, and Meding GMBH, a German manufacturer of precision packaging and laboratory supplies.
VMI Supply Chain Management
Pharmaceutical products are more and more specialized: different versions for different countries, different doses for adult and children and so on. But if you have products with an important turnover, VMI supply chain management could help you reduce the redundant costs related to excess inventory and obsolete products.
To put it in place, we should receive electronic data that tell us your sales and stock levels and allow us to view every item in stock as well as true point of sale/use data. Goldprint is then responsible for creating and maintaining the inventory plan. Under VMI, the “vendor” generates the order, not the customer.
Our web platforms and the flexibility of our computer system make any interconnection possible at short notice.
If VMI is not realistic in your case, EDI can reduce the paper flow between operators and thus increase efficiency and precision. We can be implement EDI systems for order intake, delivery documents and invoices. Our partnership with innovative company Babelway makes any connection possible.
Kit system can also help you reduce inventories: instead of managing 1 order for folding carton, 1 order for leaflets and 1 order for labels, and 1 order for aluminium, we produce and deliver the 4 products together on one pallet. Not only, the administration is greatly simplified, but as main advantage, it reduces lead times dramatically.
