They know how to bring products to market at a competitive price, and take an end-to-end approach to ensure patients receive the products they need on time and in full. Grünenthal’s transportation and warehousing operations have to meet strict regulatory and quality requirements related to storing and shipping controlled substances. On top of this, the biopharmaceutical products within the portfolio of our Contract Manufacturing Business need to be shipped in refrigerated conditions, which requires a strong focus on avoiding potential problems during the transportation process. Our Supply Chain team gives patients reliable access to our medicines by ensuring the delivery of our products to hospitals, wholesalers and pharmacies.

“Grünenthal strongly believes that every individual counts – and that we can all make a meaningful impact. I’ve been given the chance to learn and develop in different roles, and have been supported with training opportunities, global exposure and mentoring that fits my specific career aspirations. I started my career in the manufacturing environment as a Good Manufacturing Practice documentation specialist, and have developed step-by-step to become our Head of Supply Chain for Italy.”

Investing in world-class operations for Latin America

Grünenthal is going to invest more than 100 million euros in our operations in Latin America. This will ensure world-class infrastructure and process technologies at our production site in Santiago, Chile. And it will also reinforce our site in Quito, Ecuador, as a regional manufacturing and distribution centre for liquids and semi-solids.

We aim to secure Grünenthal’s long-term strength in Latin America by improving our manufacturing operations and maximising our Contract Manufacturing Business in the region. This will strengthen our ability to enter attractive markets. In this way, we are demonstrating our commitment to ensuring the same approach to quality, regulatory compliance and product development across our sites worldwide.

We are now taking further steps to meet changing requirements in countries outside of the EU. However, approaches around the world are not always comparable to the FMD. Through strong collaboration, our teams worldwide are making an important contribution to protecting our company’s market access – and making sure patients around the globe have access to safe medicines.

Protecting patients against falsified medicines

In February 2019, we began operating in line with a new piece of European Union (EU) legislation called the Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD). It aims to prevent counterfeit medicines from being dispensed by pharmacies. The changes are widely viewed as one of the largest transformations in the history of our industry. Grünenthal was one of the first 20 companies to connect to the European system for FMD – which shows the strength of our dedication to ensuring patients’ safety.
