Happy birthday Karl!

Happy birthday Karl!

IMG-20150129-WA0005_resized

One of our skilled production operatives is celebrating his birthday here at Masterflex today.

Karl Summerscales (also known as Taz) has turned 33 today.

He has worked at Masterflex for 10 years.

On a daily basis you can hear Karl singing to the radio, whilst setting the equipment up ready for the hoses to be made.

He enjoyed an eventful night out in Manchester with his friends over the weekend but is now hard at work making the hoses.

Give Masterflex a call, place an order and Karl maybe the one who manufactures your product.

What is the definition of Pharmaceutical?

The definition of pharmaceutical is something related to prescription drugs or pharmacies.

What are pharmaceutical drugs used for?

A pharmaceutical drug is a drug used to diagnose, cure, treat, or prevent disease. Drugs are classified in various ways. One of the key divisions is by level of control, which distinguishes prescription drugs from over-the-counter drugs. Another key distinction is between traditional small molecule drugs, usually derived from chemical synthesis, and bio pharmaceuticals, which include recombinant proteins, vaccines, blood products used therapeutically, gene therapy, and cell therapy. Other ways to classify medicines are by mode of action, route of administration, biological system affected, or therapeutic effects. An elaborate and widely used classification system is the Anatomical Therapeutic Chemical Classification System.

What hoses do we provide to handle pharmaceuticals?

Here at Masterflex, we can provide the Master PUR L Food to handle any pharmaceutical products.

May Day

mayday_icon

Did you know that today, Friday 1st May, is known as May Day?

May Day is most associated with towns and villages celebrating springtime fertility of the soil, livestock and revelry with village fetes and community gatherings.

Traditional English May Day celebrations include Morris dancing, crowning a May Queen and maypole dances.

Singing and eating cake are usually part of the day.

Here at Masterflex, there will be no singing, dancing or Maypoles, just enjoying the long weekend.

We are back open as normal Tuesday 5th May, 8am-5pm.
