ACG Inspection, a division of ACG, an integrated pharmaceutical manufacturing and packaging solutions company, will open a new “Centre of Excellence” in Switzerland, supporting the company’s continued global expansion. The office will be the headquarters for logistics, development, data, service support, FAT, and project management for ACG Inspections in Europe.

To celebrate the launch in Yverdon, the company is holding a three-day “open doors” celebration, inviting customers and media to join the team at the “Centre of Excellence.” At this event, ACG Inspection will showcase its future-ready technologies, such as: brand protection, geo-location identification, process analytical technology (PAT), industrial internet of things (IIoT), temperature monitoring, inspection 4.0 (AI powered) and end-to-end tracentication. Visitors to the center will be able to experience live technology demos across all three days.

Commenting on the launch of the “Centre of Excellence,” Ettore Cucchetti, CEO, ACG Inspection, said, “Our team’s focus is centered around better understanding of customer challenges. Our new “Centre of Excellence” will allow the team to create adaptive solutions in response to customer needs and requirements – helping to make them future-ready. It is set to be a hub of R&D in the region, with aims to discover new technologies for serialization, aggregation, PAT, blister inspection, authentication, and track & trace solutions (including geo-localization and temperature monitoring). We will subsequently be moving in a new business and assembly premises for Europe of about 1000 sq m. This facility is planned to be ready by the end of 2020.”

Following the opening of an “experience Studio” by ACG Inspection in Moscow in January this year, the Switzerland office becomes a part of ACG Inspection’s European base.
