Neil Hawkesford, senior product manager Healthcare at Amcor, first stepped into the world of medical packaging back in 1993, joining DRG Medical Packaging which was later to become part of the Amcor Group. Working closely with a range of medical device companies Neil was involved in the development of new packaging materials for applications ranging from injection systems through to Medical fluids. After 10 years Neil transferred into Product Management, using his experience to connect the differing needs and end-user requirements as seen from a range of stakeholder viewpoints. Today, pressure to further improve packaging performance while addressing sustainability goals is becoming a focus for medical device manufacturers.
