Strong moves to improve vial pricing

Friday, June 30, 2006

TARZANA, Calif. - Blow-molding and plastic vial specialist Strong Plastics Engineering has terminated its exclusive distribution agreement with DrugMax for Strong's patented blow-molded Ultravials. Bulk domestic and worldwide export sales are now being directly marketed to all users, including compounding pharmacies, pharmaceutical and cosmetics manufacturers, and OEM medical device suppliers. President Bernard Strong said: "This shortening of the distribution chain has immediately resulted in vastly increased production and correspondingly reduced pricing of our Ultravials, already widely used in the respiratory field for nebulizer refills, a particularly price sensitive sector of the Medicare market."
