MeadWestvaco MWV - Healthcare Packaging and Dispensing Solutions



Shellpak® packages are award-winning, first-of-their-kind blister packages. Thin, molded plastic “shells” protect fragile pills. Push-button technology lets seniors in and keeps children out. And a wide range of configuration options and generous space for graphics open up unprecedented marketing and branding opportunities.

Features and benefits

Shellpak® compliance packaging helps administer pills to patients safely, accurately and in single, controlled dosages (unit-doses).

Rugged materials

We make the shells using injection-molded, FDA-grade, high-impact polystyrene by AGI Polymatrix.

Manufactures easily

Our patented design comes in a standard configuration that runs easily on most existing line equipment, so manufacturers can maintain efficient, speedy and economical processing on production lines.

Pharmacy friendly and efficient

Pre-filled medication packages help expedite pharmacist handling, reduce errors and save operational costs. And Shellpak packages stack and store more efficiently than amber vials (standard orange pill bottles).

Child safe and senior friendly

The rigid, plastic shells and proprietary, push-button technology earned our Shellpak packages the highest child resistance rating from the US Consumer Product Safety Commission: F=1. Yet it remains easy for seniors to open.

Product options

Shellpak is customisable. We offer three standard sizes and a wide variety of shapes and colors. And optional, easy-to-customize, extended content labels provide even more room for bold graphics as well as product and health literacy information.
