Mumbai: The international technology group Schott has been appointed to India's national standards body. As a new Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) member, the company will advise CHD-10, a subcommittee of the chemicals department, on specifications and guidelines for glass manufacturing in India, mainly for pharmaceutical tubing. This allows BIS to tap into Schott's vast experience in the areas of specialty glasses, materials and advanced technologies.
"It is a tremendous privilege to support BIS in improving glass manufacturing standards in India," says Mr Sundeep Prabhu, vice president marketing and sales for pharmaceutical tubing at Schott Glass India. "This milestone is another illustration of the outstanding standardization of product quality and manufacturing processes Schott has achieved in India. Together with BIS, our efforts will benefit Indian consumers as well as industry by ensuring that glass products are safe, reliable and of highest quality."
Company data released recently proves that Schott managed to maintain stringent quality standards in the area of pharmaceutical tubing consistently over the last 25 years (1988-2013). "At Schott, we have been setting standards for manufacturing glass tubing with our technical terms of supply. This means we are committed to constantly improve our production process and offer our customers the highest possible transparency and quality assurance," says Mr Jürgen Achatz, global sales director for pharmaceutical tubing at Schott.
Schott offers pharmaceutical glass tubing products and services to customers world-wide from its five production sites in Europe, South America and Asia, including the one in Jambusar, Gujarat, which serves the Asia region.
