H&T Presspart: New market presence and ambitious growth plans

  • Division’s updated logo underlines membership of and importance to the Heitkamp & Thumann Group
  • Expansion of product portfolio for MDIs
  • Manufacturing facilities and sales offices in Asia and America planned

Since 15th March 2016 the Heitkamp & Thumann Group’s Presspart companies have been appearing on the market with the updated logo H&T Presspart.

“With the addition of H&T we underline Presspart‘s membership of the Heitkamp & Thumann Group and the strategic importance of H&T Presspart for the Group,“ explains Peter Schmelzer, General Partner of the Heitkamp & Thumann Group and Chairman of H&T Presspart.

The new logo will not result in any operative changes for customers and business partners. The legal company names, addresses and contact data, such as telephone, fax, as well as e-mail addresses and previous contact persons, will remain the same.

The update of the logo structure follows a change to the organizational structure of the Heitkamp & Thumann Group implemented at the beginning of the year. The H&T Presspart companies are now one of two divisions within the group.

“As in the past year, in 2016 we are also planning to make more than 40% of our  company group investments in our fast-growing H&T Presspart companies,“ said Christian Diemer, General Partner and CEO of the Heitkamp & Thumann Group.

We are planning to make a significant part of this year’s H&T Presspart investments in developing competences in the area of metered dose inhalers (MDI), an application for the medical treatment of respiratory diseases.

H&T Presspart already supplies pharmaceutical industry customers throughout the world with MDI canisters and actuators. In future the division will provide actuators with integrated dose counters if required. They show the patient the current fill level of the metered dose inhalers. This considerably reduces the risk of an MDI unexpectedly reaching the end of its life in a critical situation.

All H&T Presspart MDI products are distinguished by their extremely high reliability with respect to the release of the drug, thus making a key contribution to alleviating and combating a patient’s respiratory complaints. The products are currently manufactured at three locations: H&T Presspart Blackburn (UK), H&T Presspart Marsberg (DE) and H&T Presspart Tarragona (ES). The counters are produced and assembled under licence by Presspart companies in Marsberg and Tarragona.

In the coming years the current European production capacities will also be complemented by manufacturing facilities and sales offices on the American and Asian continents. “We want to meet the increasing demand for our innovative products in Asia and USA, as well as Central and Latin America, in a better and more flexible way“, said Peter Schmelzer.
