Blister packaging, not long ago considered a less significant segment of the North American pharmaceutical packaging industry, is now outpacing most other industry segments.
Ropack, celebrating our 35th anniversary, provides contract manufacturing and primary and secondary packaging of solid oral dosage, warehousing and North American and international distribution. Our portfolio of services supports the vision of our customers – more than 90 leading pharmaceutical and consumer health-care organizations in the US, Canada and Europe – by providing 100% customer satisfaction, reducing product launch timelines and accelerating custom packaging requirements from clinical trial through scale-up and commercial launch.
Pharmaceutical blister, sachet / pouch, bottle and stick-pack packaging
Ropack’s primary packaging services include blister packaging, stick-pack packaging, sachet / pouch filling and bottle packaging of tablets, capsules and powders. Our pharmaceutical manufacturing and packaging facilities are cGMP-compliant, site-licensed by the FDA and Health Canada-certified and we hold a Natural Health Product license.
Ropack recently invested nearly $9m to convert 15,000ft² for stick-pack packaging of temperature- and humidity-sensitive products. The facility, with 27 class 100000 modular clean rooms, is part of Ropack’s nearly 250,000ft² of operational space. Our ample capacity brings operational and logistical efficiencies by running products on custom lines designed for shorter runs and quick changeovers, particularly for the smaller Canadian market volumes.

Our experience, expertise and state-of-the-industry facilities help you bring your idea to life. Our pharmaceutical formulation development services include proof of concept; API characterization; pre-formulation; formulation and process development; analytical method development; and Phase I and II clinical trial material manufacturing and packaging.
Pharmaceutical contract manufacturing services

Primary pharmaceutical packaging
Ropack’s primary pharmaceutical packaging methods meet the highest quality and safety standards. Primary contract packaging options include stick-pack packaging in a low RH, temperature-controlled environment; cold-formed blister packaging with senior-friendly and child-resistant options; pouch filling of powders, solid oral dosage and liquids, including pouch filling under nitrogen and pouch filling within controlled-humidity environment; and bottling of powder and solid dosages.
Secondary pharmaceutical packaging
Secondary pharmaceutical packaging is a vital part of the preparation process. Ropack’s secondary pharmaceutical packaging services ensure that your products are ready for market on time. We establish specifications and procurement of printed packaging materials and fulfill a range of secondary packaging requirements. We insert bottles, blisters, stick-packs, pouches and leaflets into cartons and inspect barcodes and pharmacodes using scanning and vision systems. Blisters are packaged in thermo-sealed cards and are also available in wallet format. Patient kits are assembled for clinical trials, according to specified requirements. We also provide labeling, syringe assembly and vial labeling.

We handle the reception of finished products and issuing of reception reports, as well as clinical trial distribution management, clinical trial return management, and management or destruction of returned materials from clinical trials.
Our warehouse has both ambient and cold storage capabilities (2°C to 8°C), and the minimum / maximum temperatures of the warehouse and refrigeration unit are documented.
