METALL+PLASTIC is a global leader in the design, manufacture, installation, qualification
and validation of custom-designed isolators.
The company that was founded in 1957 as manufacturing isolators for customers working in laboratory animal science from 1960. This was followed later by the further development and production of isolation and containment technology for the pharmaceutical industry. Metall+Plastic set new standards from the very beginning and brought in innovations that offer many options for production. But priority is always given to the protection of the product, the operator and the environment. Unique and patented technologies, an orientation to meeting customer wishes and providing excellent service differentiate Metall+Plastic in this market.
The options for integration are extremely varied - whether for the filling of aseptic liquids or powders, in connection with e-beam tunnels, hot air tunnels, lyophilising units, autoclaves and other aseptic processing systems. Our intelligent process equipment markedly reduces process and shutdown times. In addition to leadership in this field of technology the many years of experience of the staff that numbers over a hundred forms the basis for continuous and successful growth.
