Hubert Keil Named Vice Chairman Of Healthcare Compliance Packaging Council

TOWACO, NJ - Hubert H. Keil, Managing Director and CEO of Uhlmann Packaging Systems, has been appointed Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Healthcare Compliance Packaging Council (HCPC).

With more than 30 years of experience in heavy/specialty machine tool manufacturing and engineering, Mr. Keil is responsible for the overall operation of Uhlmann USA. He originally joined the company in 1999 as Vice President of Manufacturing and Engineering, and was named Vice President of Operations a few months later. He assumed his current position in 2003 and, since then, has turned the company into a major profit center.

Prior to joining Uhlmann, he helped to create and support U.S. operations and markets for such leading Germany-based companies as Heyligenstaedt Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH and Overbeck GmbH Schleifmaschinenfabrik, and served as an independent procurer of electronic and mechanical parts for foreign and domestic industrial use. Having previously served as an HCPC board member, he holds an advanced degree in mechanical engineering from Fachhochschule Giessen (Germany).

The Healthcare Compliance Packaging Council is a not-for-profit trade association that was established in 1990 to promote the many benefits of unit dose blister and strip packaging -- especially its ability to be designed in compliance-prompting formats that help people take their medications properly.

HCPC's goal is to inform and educate consumers, health professionals and policy makers about the role that unit dose packaging can play in improving pharmaceutical compliance.

Uhlmann has its U.S. headquarters in Towaco, New Jersey. With products that include blister machines, cartoning systems, line-monitoring and control systems, and downstream packaging machinery, the company provides the North American pharmaceutical industry with sales support, service technicians, on-site training, parts inventory, tool manufacturing and rebuilt machinery, and on-site engineering for line integrations.
