StevanatoGroup

Stevanato Group aims to expand distribution of EZ-fill® whose proven advantages have turned its processing technology into an industry standard for Ready-To-Use products.

Piombino Dese (PD) - Italy, Stevanato Group S.p.A. (NYSE: STVN), a leading global provider of drug containment and delivery solutions to the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and life sciences industries, and DWK Life Sciences, a leading global manufacturer and provider of precision labware as well as primary packaging solutions for Life Science Research, Diagnostics and Pharmaceutical markets, today announced they have entered a non-exclusive agreement for the distribution and sale of the EZ-fill® Ready-to-Use solutions (RTU) by Stevanato Group.

The collaboration will leverage DWK Life Sciences’ experience in supplying a global network of laboratories and biopharma customers to broaden the distribution of Stevanato Group’s RTU EZ-fill® products, including EZ-fill® vials in Nest & Tub (N&T) and trays, and EZ-fill® Cartridges in Nest & Tub.

RTU containment solutions allow pharmaceutical companies to maximize flexibility in aseptic filling using a common filling platform and can be integrated seamlessly into existing pharmaceutical manufacturing filling lines.

“We are pleased to welcome DWK Life Sciences as a distributor of our EZ-fill® platform”, said Andrea Zambon, Corporate Business Development Senior Director of Stevanato Group. “Through DWK Life Sciences' established, widespread and specialized network, Stevanato Group aims to broaden the reach of our EZ-fill® products into the pharmaceutical ecosystem, from the laboratory to large-scale manufacturing.”

Over the last 12 years, more than 250 lines have been installed using Stevanato Group EZ-fill® packaging technology. Adopted by many of the leading glass primary packaging suppliers worldwide, EZ-fill® platform has become the market’s most established choice for pre-sterilized containers helping to ensure flexible and streamlined processability. Accommodating both small and large batch production, EZ-fill® can improve drug packaging quality, reduce Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), and shorten overall time-to-market.

Michele Mora, Managing Director & Chief Business Officer for DWK Life Sciences shared: “We are excited to partner with Stevanato Group to promote the EZ-fill® portfolio and bring the leading RTU primary packaging platform to customers in the DWK Life Sciences global network. The introduction of the EZ-fill® platform supports our strategy to expand best-in-class solutions and services from “Discovery to Delivery” that enable our customers to focus on their efforts to develop and commercialize biopharmaceuticals and therapeutics that improve patient lives.”
