MG America, the US subsidiary of MG2 Bologna, Italy, is expanding its filling division through a recent strategic partnership with COMAS.

Through the partnership, which was formalized December 21st​, MG America will supply COMAS with machinery solutions for non-sterile applications for the pharma industry, in addition to assuming sales, project management, and customer service responsibilities.

As the Comas business evolved they needed to seek a partner for the U.S. and Canada that understood the effort and strategy required to do business in the North American market​,” Randy Fraatz, Business Development Manager for MG America, told us. “This included a partner that also understood the commercial environment throughout Europe, with specific ties to Italy​.”

For MG America, the non-sterile fill/finish space was an area where the company had received several inquiries, but had previously lacked the solutions in its product portfolio.

These circumstances were such that both parties had a mutually beneficial need and, after a period of working together on an informal basis, it became clear Comas and MG America each provide the benefits the other seeks,​” added Fraatz. “We consider it very fortunate that both Comas and MG America were available for such a partnership at the same time​.”

The machinery

MG America will be providing various solutions, including a filling/capping line comprised of an elevator for feeding plastic bottles to an unscrambler, which orients the containers using a specially designed control mechanism for feeding into the filling machine.  

 “The filling machine is designed for up to six dosing heads, and the dosing module selection depends on the product compatibility, with options ranging from volumetric positive displacement systems, or peristaltic systems up to mass flow metering​,” explained Fraatz.

The transport conveyors for both the infeed and the outfeed are designed based on customer requirements and a variety of closing stations are available.

According to Fraatz, specific attention is given to how the machinery will be used by operators and technicians in production.
