Our ISO 15378 certified type-1 glass manufacturing facility at Kosamba, India, with a dedicated capacity of 45 tonnes per day (TPD) or 400 million type-1 glass vials and infusion bottles per year, is one of the most modern facilities in India.

Dedicated and Modern Facility for Type-1 Glass Packaging with Global Regulatory and Process Compliance
We manufacture USP type-1 glass vials and infusion bottles in both Amber and Flint colour from 2 ml to 500 ml capacity that can cater to both single and multi-dose applications. Our type-1 glass vials and infusion bottles are suitable for complex pharma products like liquid injectable drugs, oncology and lyophilized products owing to its excellent hydrolytic resistance and a lower coefficient of thermal expansion. Our manufacturing plant is ESP (European Pharmacopeia) compliant.
Focus on manufacturing particulate-free glass packaging
The global pharmaceutical regulators, like the USFDA, are strongly committed to eliminating particulate in injectable drugs to improve patient safety. Our facility will ensure manufacturing of particulate-free and contamination-free type-1 glass containers.
Controlled environment for packaging and inspection
Controlled environment for packaging and inspection – The cold-end of the type-1 facility is developed into a closed unit, so all inspection and packaging operations take place in a controlled environment. We have state-of-the-art camera based inspection systems to auto inspect the defects. The new cold-end layout has reduced the number of actions involved in the process.
