Realignment forms AndersonBrecon pharmaceutical company

Anderson Packaging and Brecon Pharmaceuticals now under a new corporate umbrella.
Anderson Packaging, a Rockford, IL-based pharmaceutical, clinical, and commercial contract packager, and Brecon Pharmaceuticals, a supplier of pharmaceutical commercial packaging and clinical supply services in the U.K., announced they are further aligning their businesses to become a global end-to-end pharmaceutical packaging company. Both part of the AmerisourceBergen Corp., the companies will provide packaging products and services under the name AndersonBrecon.


AndersonBrecon will feature 12 facilities across two continents, and more than 1,500 associates who will work to provide lifesaving medications to patients in more than 100 countries worldwide. Though Anderson Packaging and Brecon Pharmaceuticals have been working together since 2006, the repositioning will enable both to better respond to the evolving pharmaceutical marketplace to meet customers' global needs.

"Over the last four years, the Anderson and Brecon teams worked closely together to build the foundation for a truly global healthcare packaging partner, and have demonstrated we understand our customers and can provide comprehensive, seamless solutions," said Peyton Howell, president of AmerisourceBergen Consulting Services. "Moving to a more global organization will better position us to offer our customers a more integrated approach for the global launch of pharmaceutical products, helping to accelerate speed-to-market and product success-and achieve an unparalleled level of customer service in the industry."

the repositioning effort, AndersonBrecon will become a component of AmerisourceBergen Consulting Services (ABCS), a business unit of AmerisourceBergen that includes Xcenda, Lash Group, TheraCom, and Premier Source.

The organization offers commercialization support by integrating outcomes research, health policy analysis, managed markets agency services, reimbursement strategy, contract field staffing-and now, packaging and clinical services through AndersonBrecon.
