MTC

MTC Poland Sp. z.o.o. is headquartered Vienna, Austria with its plant in Pruszków, Poland. It exports to more than 25 countries including Europe, Scandinavia, and the US. MTC is a flexographic printer converting blister packaging for pharmaceutical and providing laminates and specialized foils for cosmetic packaging.
It also offers thermoformed packaging, rotogravure printing, and specialized products such as Easy Snap packaging. The factory in Pruszków employs a staff of 86. MTC Polska is part of the MTC Holding Group, family owned company, which was founded in 1986 in Vienna. MTC Polska company was established in 1993 in Warsaw.

We selected HiFlow because it had most of the required functionalities, as well as it met the functionalities required by our demanding clients from the pharmaceutical industry. Not all software vendors were able to meet these requirements.

Precision, compliance – and small runs

“We are family-owned company with a modern production plant with quality certificates—BRC IoP, HCCP, and GMP,” says Lukasz Szczepanski, CFO, MTC Poland. “Our goal is to establish a long-lasting, strategic partnership with our valuable customers.”
To meet that goal, the package printer must be able to produce very low order quantities—minimum orders of MTC’s pharmaceutical jobs are five to ten kilograms; for cosmetics 250 square meters. Szczepanski was looking for a robust MIS that could handle the high-precision, highquality print jobs – and small production lots, as well as maintain strict quality control and regulatory compliance.

Replacing legacy systems

MTC began the process of selecting a new MIS system when it ended support of its old system, and was in the midst of a planned expansion of its lamination process for the finishing of aluminum foil and plastics. HiFlow showed that it had the capacity to efficiently integrate all plant machines and processes.

Pharmaceutical production is an extremely demanding process that
requires visibility, control, and security. An MIS/MES system provides the support that enables
manufacturers like MTC to take on complex projects.

Reliable equipment + robust software

While the equipment and machines MTC runs are able to handle sophisticated work, without a streamlined and accurate workflow, MTC found it was losing productivity. HiFlow provided the software designed exclusively for MTC’s needs. This included HiFlow’s visual workflow technology, smart scheduling, real time analytics. HiFlow effectively eliminated excess human touch points, and provided real time data to estimators, sales and customer service. MTC could now be much more responsive to evolving customer needs

The demanding needs of pharma

HiFlow provides the MIS/MES systems designed to help pharma packaging manufacturers and printers operate more efficiently and profitably. One crucial element for pharmaceutical and cosmetics is complete traceability throughout the process, from raw material to product production and inspection. An MIS can compile detailed records and store information in its database.
Once an order is received from a client, all materials, tests and documents are allocated to that specific job. Validation impacts every process and component of pharmaceutical and cosmetics production. Machines, systems, equipment, and technology need to function at a high level, in a lean way. Packaging printers for these industries need to meet ISO, FDA, EU MDR, GMP and others. HiFlow’s comprehensive set of tools supports quality control by including all the reports and information needed for regulatory compliance purposes. Dies and tools are stored in die libraries in the database, and dies can be visually compared to the template in the job description– another step in insuring error free production.

HiFlow provides MTC with
comprehensive service of orders, from the acceptance of the order to
the departure of the finished product to the customer
