Eastman is getting ready to put its medical-grade copolyester technology, testing and service approach center stage at Pharmapack 2019. New for this year’s show is the addition of its customer facing state-of-the-art European Technology Center.

The opening of its new technology center Europe promises customers access to 75 years of experience and expertise in medical polymers used for the development of protective, cost-effective packaging for the pharmaceutical and devices market. Based in Belgium at Ghent University's technology park, the center works with customers from design conception to implementation.

The center is proof of our commitment to a ‘total solution’ approach which goes beyond material supply. It ensures each aspect of product development from design to compliant and commercially viable implementation is well-supported.”
