Our Factory

Our Company

The MTC Pharma-Center in Pruszków, Poland, belongs to the family-owned MTC Holding Group with the headquarters in Vienna, Austria.
Our MTC Pharma-Center was built as a manufacturing plant for pharmaceutical flexible foils on the green field in 1999.
The conception of our machinery, the production process, the hygienic standard, the quality management - everything was and is focused on printing foils for the pharmaceutical industry.
We know the demanding requirements of our customers and we meet them on a very high level, but we always question our systems and we are continually working on this with our partners within the pharmaceutical industry.We have also responded to the needs of the market, for example, via producing even small orders, including multicolored foils. Many international pharmaceutical concerns such as GSK, Novartis and Sanofi are our customers. Our exports have seen a strong increase we currently deliver to more than 22 countries.
We see ourselves as a very flexible, highly specialized and independent company.


Our Products

We strive to offer our customers all types of pharmaceutical foils, including 20 and 25 my aluminium foils, aluminium/PE laminates, sachet foils in several specifications, child resistant foils, counterfeit-proof foils, foils with conductive tracks and many others.
Additionally we offer aluminium foils for the food industry and several laminates for the cosmetics industry.
Of course it is our goal to provide our customers with the most optimal packing material possible. That means, among other things, that the packing material meets all the requirements of “Patient Compliance” in medical therapy. We are qualified to advise our customers on the optimal packaging in such cases.
New products and specifications necessitated by the market are taken very quickly into our product portfolio.

Some of Our Solutions

Foils for intelligent blister systems


In 2006 and 2008 we participated in the EU-funded project “MEDI-VOICE” (this consortium of various companies had the task to develop a cheap and compact packaging solution for blister systems, in order to meet the needs of Europe’s blind, illiterate and aging populations). Since that time, it has become our goal to participate in developing, improving and producing intelligent blister systems. Printed conductive tracks, printed energy sources, passive RFID systems and integrated chips -- there are endless possibilities. We are working on projects and solutions.

Foils against counterfeiting


The US-based „Center for Medicines in the Public Interest“ estimated that counterfeit drug sales would reach US$ 75 billion globally in 2010, an increase of more than 90% from 2005. Obviously it is necessary to combat that by a various means. One of these means is the appropriate printing of the primary packaging with visible or hidden features.
We offer a wide range of solutions. We are happy to discuss further details in a personal conversation at any time.

Packaging material improves “Patient Compliance”


MTC is a member of HCPC Europe (Healthcare Compliance Packaging Council, www.hcpc-europe.org), which was founded in 2003. HCPC is a non-profit organization which aims to improve medical therapy by optimizing the design of packaging materials. In Germany the costs of non-compliance are around 13 billion euro per year (13% of all health care expenditures). Non-compliance causes thousands of deaths.
We gladly advise our customers on how to improve the product design to be in line with “Patient Compliance”. There are many possibilities for designing the recognizability and distinctiveness of a product.

Child resistant blister foils


Nowadays there are several regulations in European countries regarding the packing material for medicine which could be misused by children with fatal consequences. On the other hand this packing material should be senior citizen friendly. To meet these needs and in order to be prepared for a European-wide solution, we are offering several specifications.
