The IMA Group at PHARMTECH 2009  

The Russian pharmaceutical market is potentially huge, given its population, and holds a lot of opportunities for existing companies in this area.  

IMA can boast a long standing presence on the Russian market thanks to its branch office I.M.A. EST Moscow. The IMA subsidiary has a dedicated sales and field service network for each of the leading business areas, in the pharmaceutical, cosmetic, toiletry, chemical and food sectors: IMA ACTIVE Division, IMA LIFE and IMA SAFE. The subsidiary is also in charge of sales and after sales for the tea and coffee packaging machines manufactured by IMA FLAVOUR. The subsidiary was opened many years ago in order to better understand and satisfy the requirements of the Russian industry which is an important and strategic market for our Group.

The Russian market places more attention on machinery, particularly for the packaging of pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical products, to increase productivity due to the growth in internal demand.

PHARMTECH 2009 offered  the opportunity to meet our staff and discover our latest machines and complete lines for the processing and packaging of both pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical products. Our experts  demonstrated  the innovative features of our new solutions.
