Contract Packager Reed-Lane Sees Increased Interest in Blister Packaging Operations

Reed-Lane, a New Jersey-based contract packaging provider serving leading pharmaceutical manufacturers, has experienced an uptick in interest in its blister packaging services. The spike in inquiries has followed the company’s double-digit blister packaging capacity growth, spurred by its recent purchase of an additional UPS 4 Blister Machine from Uhlmann Packaging Systems.

In addition to its two UPS 4 Blister Machines, Reed-Lane’s blistering operations are anchored by units from Klöckner and CAM. Combined, the equipment enables precise, high-speed filling with in-line printing and inspection for both prescription and over-the-counter products. This machinery diversity also makes Reed-Lane flexible and nimble, allowing the contract packager to either work within existing package platforms or collaborate with customers and suppliers to design custom, product-specific tooling or packaging features.

“Blister packaging seems to be growing in popularity as many pharma manufacturers look for solutions with heightened protection against moisture and oxygen,” said Patricia Elvin, President of Reed-Lane. “As a contract packager with a variety of blistering capabilities, this places Reed-Lane in prime position to offer a wide range of options for those considering blister packs.”

In addition to blister packaging, Reed-Lane has three other specialties: bottling, pouching and convenience vial filling. The CPO also has extensive secondary capabilities in labeling, cartoning and card sealing.
