Our brand new corporate program based on systematic customer feed back is witness of a clear proof of the dedication of Saint-Gobain Desjonquères team to provide the best quality level feedback of service to its pharmaceutical clients.
In agreement with their customers, SGD is setting up a proactive specific “quality contract” adapted to their needs and requirements.The traceability of the production is maintained through a computerized system of all composition analysis results. Controls carried out and
acceptance limits are described in our standard specifications, available in several languages.
In all its factories, Saint-Gobain Desjonquères developed fully automated inspection systems – from the initial composition of raw material to the final packaging. On-line inspection systems check 100 % of the bottles for dimensional, functional and visual aspects. A broad variety of physical-chemical tests are performed to validate the
composition of each product batch. Additionally, for every production batch of bottles and for each type of glass, hydrolytic resistance tests are conducted to assess and validate the stability of the final product.
SGD works in collaboration with its clients providing them with all the requested documentation for quick approval and registration of their products with the Regulatory
agency (Drug Master Files registered at the FDA and
quality certificates for each delivery etc…).
