Pharmatube Limited is a private company established in 1986, now considered by many pharmaceutical companies to be Europe's leading manufacturer of collapsible aluminium tubes. The very high level of quality and cleanliness demanded for pharmaceuticals is also applied to the manufacture of tubes for other markets, such as DIY, Toiletries, Healthcare & Industrial.

Pharmatube has built its reputation on three key aspects:


A quality product, which conforms to the most rigorous testing procedures applied by Europe's leading pharmaceutical companies.

At Pharmatube, 'quality' is foremost in the minds of every member of the team, which is why our line operators have been given responsibility for the quality of the product they manufacture.

  • Additionally, our quality assurance department ensures that the customer's specific AQL requirements are met to guarantee orders are exactly as requested.

Our modern production lines are ideally suited to high volume runs, but efficient changeover procedures give us the flexibility to produce medium to small quantities too.
Pharmatube are approved suppliers to companies such as he Mentholatum Company, Reckitt Benckiser, Dermal Laboratories, Advanced Medical Solutions, Convatec and Ecolab, with whom we've established an excellent reputation.


Flexibility is in our culture. We have a highly flexible approach to customers' requirements.


A working environment in which strong emphasis is placed on cleanliness and efficiency. In addition to Process Control, where responsibility is in the hands of the line operatives, regular testing is carried out by QC personnel culminating in each batch being checked against customers' specific AQL standards before being released for delivery.
