Continuous improvement through many own ideas
Continuous optimization plays an important role in our daily lives: We want to use the knowledge and skills of all our colleagues to be successful together in the future.
In 2014, we introduced our Ideefix ideas management system to address the many small opportunities for improvement that are noticeable in our daily work and have not yet been implemented. The suggestions for improvement revolve around sustainability, work safety and savings in materials, time and costs....read more

Faller trainees get involved in Waldkirch residential and nursing home

Faller offers new DryPeel Flag Label for reliable documentation
August Faller has developed a new label. The DryPeel Flag label consists of three material layers and is particularly suitable for documentation and simple product marking. The label can be removed in partial layers without leaving any residue or adhesive. It enables doctors, for example, to safely and accurately document the use of an anaesthetic or a vaccine.
The middle layer of the DryPeel Flag Label is easy to separate from the base label. More part labels can also be removed for descriptions: for marking injection vials in medical technology, the pharmaceutical industry or laboratories. These can be designed in such a way that they adhere to the container and stand out like a flag. The user can mark them easily and legibly with a ballpoint or transparency pen....read more
Faller presents environmentally-friendly multi-page adhesive label
The sustainability of packaging is gaining in importance in the pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors. To react efficiently to this situation, August Faller has developed a multi-page adhesive label for glass, plastic, paper and cardboard containers – without the usual film lamination.
The label is made of paper and can be safely and completely recycled – making a significant contribution to more environmentally-friendly pharmaceutical packaging. The innovative idea was realised at the Faller factory in Schopfheim, southern Baden-Württemberg, which specialises in the production of labels....read more
August Faller wins FINAT Award
This year, the coveted FINAT Award in the "multi-layer labels" category goes to August Faller. The packaging specialist convinced the jury with its Faller info label. The multi-page info label offers sufficient free space on the smallest possible surface – and it can be handled easily by manufacturers and users alike.
The need for information on pharmaceutical packaging is increasing rapidly, because as well as legally-prescribed information, labels must also contain more and more application aids for doctors, pharmacists and patients – often in the form of pictograms or multi-lingual versions.
Faller executives beat their way through the wilderness
Cooperation based on trust, an open communication culture and a strong community are an important part of the secret of our success. In order to keep these factors alive, our managers from all countries and locations recently met to exchange ideas outside of their everyday working lives.
However, this meeting was very unusual: the entire team spent 2 days together in the wilderness. Instead of calculations, planning and budget rounds, the program now included tracking, making fires, or determining plants, animal tracks and mushrooms....read more

August Faller produced 10,000 folding cartons at short notice
On a Thursday afternoon in the summer of 2018 we received an emergency call: The pharmaceutical company G. Pohl-Boskamp needed 10,000 cartons to deliver a drug for wasp stings. On the market, this product became temporarily scarce. A potentially dangerous supply shortage was imminent.
The packaging was already ordered, but not scheduled until about two weeks later. Reacting quickly and with great commitment, we put all the levers into action to produce and deliver the boxes earlier: the order planning was changed and the production team put in an extra weekend shift. On Tuesday morning, the packaging was delivered to the customer in Hohenlockstedt, 850 kilometers away, in Schleswig-Holstein....read more
