Marchesini Group to open new Russian office in Moscow

Italian firm will strengthen its presence in the region and provide prompt and customised assistance to customers

Marchesini is strengthening its presence in Russia by opening new offices in Moscow on 1 January 2016.

The Italian pharmaceutical machinery manufacturer says the facilities will not only reinforce the Group’s partnerships in the Russian market, but also further satisfy local growing demand for innovative technical solutions.

Once these facilities have been inaugurated and are up and running, they will provide a prompt and customised assistance service, capable of satisfying the needs of all customers, the firm said.

Marchesini's Russian team works for the representation agency IES International, which has contributed over the last 30 years to giving the Marchesini brand a strong and reliable name in Russia. This team of experts, who have always worked in the pharmaceutical industry, will be directed by Sergey Ilyukhin, Marchesini's new Branch Manager.

The Russian office will offer new opportunities for Marchesini's existing customers but also for new ones. It will also be possible to provide spare parts in 'rouble' currency and to offer a wider-spread assistance service, which will consequently shorten the bureaucratic after-sales times.

These new strategies are the result of work done over the years by people who are about to leave the Group, such as Chairman, Sergio Bresciani; Andrzej Piwonski, who was in charge of the representation office in Moscow; and Area Manager, Lauro Bartoli.

Before the new office opens, Marchesini will be exhibiting its FSP 05 with integrated weight control system at Pharmtech in Moscow at the end of this month (24–27 November). This compact, fast and flexible machine is for packaging pre-filled syringes and guarantees totally sterile conditions in every phase of the process.

The FSP 05 is a modular machine and can be equipped with 2 to 5 filling/stoppering stations. It can process up to 12.000 pieces/hour and offers dispensing precision while totally protecting the syringes, which is essential when sterile products are involved.

The machine is also equipped with a new integrated weight control system (IPC), which verifies the tare weight (unfilled syringe) and the gross weight (filled syringe without stopper) using just one load cell, for each filling station.
