Pharmaceutical Manufacturing and Packing Sourcer

Brighter Futures

In its recent report, ‘Pressure on the production line: Working capital in global manufacturing’, PwC dissects the ways in which manufacturing companies are managing and using working capital. It points to the need for businesses to invest continuously in their plant and operations to remain competitive and to secure long-term stability. The report reveals that the sector’s rate of investment has seen a steady decline over the last five years, which now sits at its lowest point during that period, concluding that better management of working capital is key to generating the necessary cash for investment.

Looking specifically at the pharmaceutical sector, the everincreasing cost of bringing drugs to market means that larger pharma and biotechnology companies are constantly searching for manufacturing strategies to drive more effective development and manufacturing operations. Ongoing demand for increased production efficiency exists in the form of more automation, monitoring, and tighter process control.

Historically, lighting has not been a major consideration for the sector. For many, existing lighting solutions are considered adequate for purpose, and reinvesting in lighting is regarded as low on the list of priorities. However, a new mindset is emerging. The sector’s leaders are embracing the latest idea of light as a service (LaaS), whereby the future performance of the lighting solution is ensured by the supplier and where no capital outlay is required. These same leaders are tuned in to the energy-saving potential provided by today’s lighting solutions and the importance of the correct lighting quality to support employee performance and wellbeing.
