Centralpack - packaging industry of Prati-Donaduzzi Group, located in Toledo, in the western region of Paraná, aware of its important role in society, produced aluminum tape for chloroquine on an emergency basis.
In response to a request from the Federal Government that will produce the drug at the Army Chemical and Pharmaceutical Laboratory (LQFEX), the tape that will be used in the packages was made in one day and already follows the delivery logistics.
The drug is being tested by public health agencies to fight the Coronavirus (Covid-19) and the Brazilian Army's laboratories will expand production.
The director of Centralpack, Gimenes Silva, explains that given the decision of the Federal Government to produce chloroquine, there has been a request for the company to meet the demand for packaging tapes urgently.
“As it is a medicine that the Ministry of Health is likely to use to fight the Coronavirus, we do not measure efforts to help at this moment. A process that takes 20 days to be concluded was carried out in record time”, he says.
The consequences of using the medication are being evaluated by the competent health agencies. However, it is the responsibility of the private initiative to support when requested and trained.
“It is a hope that the Federal Government will make its decision. We, as industries whose mission is to bring health and well-being to the population, are responsible for enabling decisions that can impact the treatment of the virus”, says Eder Fernando Maffissoni, CEO of Prati-Donaduzzi Group.
The execution of the demand on an urgent basis was made possible by the competence of Centralpack, which combines technology with the best production processes. "We have great potential in the production of packaging. We present the necessary solutions with quality and agility", evaluates the CEO.
