Nomax Inc.

Nomax Inc. of St. Louis, Missouri, is a registered drug and medical device manufacturer and packager of solid and effervescent tablets, granules, non-sterile liquids, premoistened towelettes, and a variety of laminated diagnostic strips.

The Situation

In 2005, Nomax was informed that its supplier of flexible packaging would be going out of business. Nomax had less than six months to qualify a new supplier of flexible packaging, and had to act quickly.

With strict packaging specifications for moisture-sensitive products, Nomax needed to locate a packaging supplier capable of providing materials that could ensure barrier protection for all of the company’s products. Each product had its own unique barrier requirements that needed to be met in order to ensure product integrity.

Nomax also needed an agile supplier that could quickly supply test materials in time to perform the 12 weeks of stability testing required by the FDA, while still allowing enough time to fill the pipeline before their current inventory of material was depleted.

The Solution

Larry Jeske, Director of Operations of Nomax, decided to include Glenroy in the search for a new packaging film supplier. Dedicated to customer service, Glenroy’s employees quickly met to develop a solution to solve Nomax’s problem. Within two weeks of the initial contact with Glenroy, the converter was able to manufacture and provide test rolls for all products.

The Results

Nomax was able to meet the FDA guidelines for stability testing, qualify material, and replenish inventory without missing any production time.

According to Jeske, “Glenroy is very easy to work with and very cooperative. I think the world of Glenroy’s service. Everybody I’ve ever dealt with at Glenroy has been extremely helpful, from the quality assurance engineers to the purchasing agents. I consider Glenroy a top-notch vendor, and have found the company’s products to be competitively priced.”
