Sanner products and brands

We introduced the first desiccant closure for effervescent tablets around 60 years ago. This invention ensured
that bubbles are in the glass and not in the packaging

In the meantime, we have further developed the dosage, applications and use of desiccant packaging for pharmaceutical products. Today, innovations like our desiccant caps AdCap® and desiccant bags AdPack® complement our diversified product range.

Sanner is the global market leader for effervescent tablet packaging. Our DASG and DOSG closure systems exemplify the highest quality. FOG 27® is an innovative, user-friendly closure that received top marks in consumer testing. Combined with the Brilliance® tube based on IML printing technology, it represents the latest generation of effervescent tablet packaging.

We also play a leading role in desiccant packaging for test strips, especially in the Asian market.

Another one of our strengths lies in the design, development, technical implementation, and large-scale production of customized plastic packaging and components – particularly in the field of medical technology and diagnostics. We have already implemented numerous forward-looking concepts with our Engineered Product Solutions. In cooperation with external partners and affiliates, we are working on NFC, RFID and digital solutions designed for genuine patient compliance

The highest product and patient safety is our goal. Our numerous pharmaceutical packaging solutions deliver proof of our expertise every day. According to the principle “Sanner. Protecting Health.”, we mainly produce high-quality plastic packaging and components for pharmaceutical application in four different product categories: Pharma Desiccant PackagingTest Strip PackagingEffervescent Packaging and Engineered Product Solutions.
