PCI has its own share of legacy processes that people refer to as the old friends. By the same token they often appear to be well known, fully optimized, and were developed years ago without any possibility for additional improvements.
It is part of PCI’s brand promise to its customers to undertake continuous efforts to increase the efficiency in its manufacturing. Recently PCI’s chemists revisited one of its older, commercialized products to take a fresh look at the chemistry and figure out if one can streamline the manufacturing process using contemporary process development thinking.
Recently, PCI’s scientists conducted a thorough investigation of a product that had been developed and made at PCI for almost10 years.
Highlights of the new development:
Several tangible results were achieved. Among them:
Fresh thinking, attention to detail, and an open minded approach brought about an overall increase in efficiency of more than 20%!
With the greater manufacturing efficiency PCI is able to pass along savings to its customer while creating more capacity to manufacture other products-Everybody Wins!!
