Adare Pharma Solutions has selected Vantage Solutions to lead a major upgrade of its pharmaceutical packaging capabilities.
Vantage’s upgrades will allow Adare to better serve their client’s needs at their FDA-registered packaging facility in Philadelphia PA. The site provides a full range of solid-dose contract packaging services at both clinical and commercial scale, including bottles, blister packs, stick packs, and packaging of DEA schedules II-IV.
Vantage will oversee the installation and optimisation of conveyors, printers, cameras, and computer systems that will bring considerable enhancements to the serialisation and aggregation capabilities of Adare’s bottling and blister pack lines. Currently, Adare offers tracking of individual bottles and blister packs, and these upgrades will extend this tracking ability to every component involved in the packaging process.
“Vantage’s upgrades will help us provide additional peace of mind and security of supply to our customers. When these upgrades are complete, every component on a pallet—whether it’s a bottle, blister pack, bundle, or shipper—can be confirmed as manufactured by Adare,” said Renard Jackson, Adare’s Vice President of Manufacturing Operations, North America.
As an independent integrator, Vantage delivers a ‘best of breed’ approach to our solution
The upgrades, which are expected to be completed in the third quarter of this year, will make Adare’s packaging services fully compliant with the new Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) regulations regarding the tracing of prescription drug products through the pharmaceutical supply distribution chain, which go into effect in November 2023.
“Vantage is a long-term design, implementation, and validation partner for Adare, so they were the natural choice for this extensive improvement to our capabilities,” said Robert Heinz, Director, Facilities and Engineering for the Adare’s Philadelphia facilities. “As an independent integrator, Vantage delivers a ‘best of breed’ approach to our solution.”
“Vantage is excited and honored to work with a company as dynamic and patient-focused as Adare,” said John Jordon, Vantage President. “Throughout the process, Adare’s focus on client needs and company mission have driven every decision. Our relationship is a great example of Vantage’s collaborative results-oriented approach.”
