“We understand our customers’ requirements and use this knowledge to develop our materials. This is now officially reflected in the certification,” says Mike Freudenstein, Director Global Marketing Healthcare at ALBIS. “At the same time, it is also an indicator of our strong position in this important and particularly sensitive market segment, in which we have experienced double-digit growth over recent years. The current situation with the global COVID-19 pandemic shows that our decision to continuously develop strategies for the medical products, pharmaceutical packaging, and diagnostic applications markets was the right one.

In addition to our in-house brands ALCOM® MED and ALCOM® MED+, our product range also includes brands from well-known polymer manufacturers such as BASF, Covestro, LyondellBasell, INEOS Styrolution, Eastman and Solvay, whose products serve a wide range of healthcare applications.
