Whilst preparing for the start of recent renovation works which were carried out at Europlaz, we came across some archived photos which got us reminiscing about Europlaz’s history!
Join us as we head back to the 1970s, 80s and early 90s.
Europlaz’s Cleanroom 1 circa 1988/1990. Main production was manufacturing inhalers for GSK and Fisons, producing 53 million components per year, 24/7. Featuring automated systems for checking the functions of the inhalers, each part was 100% tested.
Printing for a Cosmetic Brand
Printing operation undertaken by Europlaz circa 1978 / 1985. The part being printed is a cosmetic makeup compact for Helena Rubinstein.
Moulding Operation from the early 1980s
Before our first cleanroom was installed, this is how the inhalers for GSK and Fisons and other medical products were produced by Europlaz.
Moulding Machine from the 1980s
