The rising health uncertainties of contemporary times demands solutions that are not only efficient in their result but also possess a promising factor in ensuring the mitigation of Occupationally Acquired Infections(OAI).
This can be well understood by the latest research report conducted in the United States of America, which says, “ In the USA, as high as 19% of patients had been identified as healthcare workers.”
Having a deep toll on the health of care professionals, OAI contributes to a high threat to care workers’ health. This needs to be resolved with enhanced compliance. And the best practice that can ensure the prevention of such hazards is efficient hygiene practices. To solve this crisis that has been prevailing in the healthcare community, Teampac Oy has been safeguarding care workers with its quality products like liquid-based products as well as cleaning and disinfecting wet wipes. Adding up, the company also serves lotions, intimate gels, lubricants, kinds of toothpaste, shampoos, and ultrasound gels in tubes, bottles, and jars. And its specialized medical devices are a true game changer.
This Finnish manufacturer has a rich industrial experience of 50 years, delivering high quality and assuring the community with its dedicated services.
Teampac Oy adheres to quality and regulatory provisions while delivering its valued clients in the healthcare, hygiene, and cosmetics product line while transforming the medical device equipment industry, making the healthcare world express a sigh of relief with a blossoming smile.
Spearheading this transformative wheel in the health hygiene segment is its CEO – Jyri Temonen. He joined the team in 2020 and starting his journey from Henley Business School to the CEO of Teampac Oy, he has helped many businesses turn around and led people in changing the industry ecosystem. Through his expertise in brand management and sales, he has enhanced the quality of Teampac’s production and has led to an almost 100 percent delivery reliability guarantee to its customers, which has established Teampac as a very stable and reliable partner.
Through the interview highlights below, let us know more about Teampac’s dedication to quality and customer satisfaction in the healthcare sector through its expertise in concept management!
Please brief about Teampac Oy, its USPs, and what has helped position it as a reliable name in healthcare.
Teampac is a Finnish healthcare contract manufacturer operating in the international market. We have more than fifty years of experience in developing and manufacturing various liquid-based products as well as cleaning and disinfecting wet wipes for healthcare, hygiene, and cosmetics operators. We employ 60 professionals, and our turnover is approximately 15 million euros.
Teampac handles production from the idea to the finished product—whether it’s a completely new product series or an update of an existing product family. The production of an existing product can also be transferred to us. Teampac can be responsible for the entire production chain of creating a product from concept to shelf or, if desired, a part of it, whenever necessary.
The quality of our production and almost 100 percent delivery reliability guarantee our customers a very stable and reliable partner. More than 70 percent of our production is exported, with direct export to approximately 20 countries. Products manufactured by Teampac are used across the continents.
We have strong expertise in infection prevention and wound care requirements of healthcare, so we are able to offer our customers the best product solutions. We have succeeded in our work when the customer smiles and is satisfied with what we have achieved together!
Shed some light on your offerings and how they impact the healthcare industry as well as your clients.
We manufacture a wide range of products for healthcare needs, e.g., for disinfecting and cleaning surfaces and skin, starting with patient wipes, adhesive remover, stoma and wound cleaning products. We manufacture wet wipes both individually packaged (single sachets) and in multipacks (flowpacks).
We also deliver liquid-based products like lotions, intimate gels, lubricants, toothpaste, shampoos, and ultrasound gels in tubes, bottles, and jars. Our special expertise is Medical Device products, for which we support the customer throughout the entire production process.
What are the elements that define Teampac’s success and a wide customer reach today?
At Teampac, the quality of our work comes from the contribution of each of our employees.
Quality must therefore take part in everything from planning to production and from machines to the knowledge of people. To ensure the quality of the processes, Teampac uses a certified medical device management system ISO 13485, which covers product development, contract manufacturing and sales of medical devices.
With this certification we can manufacture CE-marked products. We also operate according to ISO 9001 standard, which analyzes our processes in working methods, decision-making models, division of responsibilities, and customer needs, and to achieve the set goals.
In Q1 of 2023, we will also implement ISO 14001 environmental certification for our operations.
What would be your advice to budding entrepreneurs aspiring to venture into healthcare?
The healthcare care sector is an interesting area where customer relationships are normally long, but at the same time the threshold to enter the sector is very difficult due to the large initial investments in technology and expert organization. It is also good to keep in mind that product development is long-term and time-consuming.
In the future, all these claims will increase even more due to increasing regulation. Getting to the market requires long-term work and belief in one’s own skills.
How do you envision scaling your organization’s operations and offerings in 2022 and beyond?
The last few years have been a real time of growth and development for Teampac. We have worked hard for our common goal, which is to always support our customer’s business in the best possible way, and this is how we will operate in the future as well.
Stable growth and profitable operations have given Teampac the opportunity to continuously invest in people, know-how, and equipment. In the last three years, we have invested more than three million euros in premises, equipment and people. This gives us a stable situation to grow our operations and our offering to our customers.
Teampac’s vision is to be the leading contract manufacturer of healthcare products in Northern Europe. The goal is tough, but at the same time we know that we are heading in the right direction.
