The Primary Packaging Glass Division manufactures primary packaging products for pharmaceuticals made of glass, such as pharmaceutical jars, ampoules, vials and cartridges.
In our tubing production sites we produce clear and amber borosilicate glass tubing of best hydrolytic quality. Based on this we manufacture cartridges, ampoules and vials as pharmaceutical primary packaging products.
Our comprehensive range of Gx® Vials comprises sizes from 0.6 to 50 ml in different designs, with or without blowback (European and American version) according to industry standards or to your individual specifications.
Gerresheimer is an approved supplier of cartridges for various pharmaceutical applications. Our Gx® Cartridges range from 1.5 to 10 ml in clear and amber (glass type I). To fulfill the quality demands by our customers, all our Gx® Cartridge lines are equipped with visual inspection systems for 100% dimensional control. Our product range includes cartridges for pen-systems and dental cartridges.
In the field of pharmaceutical ampoules we have a long-year expertise and are known as a highly competitive supplier and partner. Our standard range with high-quality products offers us several options to match the type and properties of our Gx® Ampoules to your special requirements and needs beyond the ISO norms.

Complete range of colours
An endless variety of shapes is complemented by Gerresheimer with the right colour to suit each case: in accordance with our customers´ wishes we offer every shade in flint, coloured or opal glass through furnace or feeder colouring and through colour coating.
Individual finishing techniques
In all cosmetics packaging the finishing is the guarantee of unmistakable expressiveness. We use state-of-the-art finishing techniques: ceramic screen printing (including techniques free of heavy metals, and in the most unusual forms), organic screen printing for dip decoration and colour spraying, tampo printing and colour coating, acid etching in all variations (including part surfaces), sand blasting and spray painting.
Combinable closure variants
Just as much as the colour and finishing, the closure must be individually matched to the packaging design. Most of our standard flacons have standard necks and therefore fit the closures, caps and atomizer pumps of many manufacturers.
We are happy to act as mediator in the choice of suppliers.
