LEAN MANUFACTURING IN OUR
MANUFACTURING PLANT

Our pharmaceutical plant, located in San Sebastián de los Reyes (Madrid), has a total surface area of 16,000 m2 and a production area of 11,000 m2.

It has a warehouse for raw materials and materials, three parallel production sections for Semi-Solids, Solids and Liquids and a warehouse for finished products.

The manufacturing plant for pharmaceutical specialities is equipped with state-of-the-art technology and modern systems for communication with customers and suppliers, enabling us to provide the best service with the flexibility required by customers and the different markets.

Our production system follows the Lean Manufacturing methodology with a linear flow from the reception and storage of raw materials and materials, preparation of the components of each manufacturing batch, according to the approved formula, preparation of the pharmaceutical form, packaging, conditioning, storage of the finished product and dispatch of the finished product.

The pharmaceutical plant’s offices are located on the side of the building.
We have an area attached to the plant that provides purified water, steam, nitrogen and alcohol services, as well as our own high-capacity treatment plant.

STORAGE OF RAW MATERIALS

It has 3 segregated areas for the storage of raw materials, packaging material, an area for rejected material, cold chambers, freezers and an archive area. The storage capacity is 3,700 pallets.

DISPENSING AREA

In the Dispensing Area, the components of the batches to be manufactured are prepared and weighed according to the established formulation and procedures, to be sent to the corresponding mixing areas. This area has a separate area for the storage and custody of active ingredients.

PLANNING SYSTEMS

INFORMATION TECHNOLOGIES

The Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system specialised in industrial environments is our backbone. All other systems are connected to it, and covers preventive, corrective and predictive maintenance operations and other more traditional systems such as Materials Requirement Planning (MRP) and connectivity with customers’ and suppliers’ supply chains that give us perfect visibility of the entire process.

The Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) software from the Quality Control laboratory eliminates manual data entry and calculations, avoiding errors and making data more reliable. The Manufacturing Execution System (MES) for tasks in the manufacturing and conditioning areas eliminates the problem of paper in the pharmaceutical plant, achieving perfect traceability of operations in real time, as well as efficiency in operations, incidents and stoppages. The Dispensing system (weighing of the formula components) guarantees the perfect preparation of the raw materials.

PHARMACEUTICAL QUALITY SYSTEMS
