The heads of these organizations saw the pharmaceutical industry undergoing a comprehensive transformation process in recent years which presented a wealth of challenges while revealing an opportunity for suppliers to join together to create a comprehensive solution for the pharmaceutical supply chain. The six companies will share a pavilion (booth #1524) at INTERPHEX to kick-off their collaboration in the North American market.

“We are honored that Excellence United will be making INTERPHEX their first stop in North America,” said Bob Stewart, industry vice-president, at INTERPHEX Events. “INTERPHEX is the perfect place to showcase this unique partnership representing the natural evolution of these companies working together.”

All member companies are independent, medium-sized companies, and each one plays an acknowledged technical role as innovators in their respective segment of the market; this is expressed by the name “Excellence United.” Together, the members of the alliance cover all of the stages of the pharmaceutical manufacturing for whom Excellence United offers a unique network in terms of know-how, technology, service, and project management on a worldwide basis.

“Our aim is to take advantage of our joint offerings to significantly improve the productivity and efficiency of our customers’ production, development and packaging processes,” said Uhlmann CEO Siegfried Drost, a spokesperson with Excellence United. “Over the past few years, we’ve practically been passing each other the baton in numerous equipment projects involving operators pursuing a best-in-class approach. By bundling our competencies, we can now offer customers this performance from a single source. They in turn benefit from improved interface management, comprehensive documentation, and on-site support.”
