“My name is Heike Grün. I'm 45 years old, and I'm working as Manager, Product Development Europe at the West European Headquarters. I'm in charge of development of new elastomeric packaging devices. I see myself as an interface between the requirements of our customers, the pharmaceutical companies, the Health Governments and the patient, as well as with West’s process technology.

Based on market requirements, as well as on specific customer demands, we are developing new elastomeric closure systems starting from first drawings, continuing through prototyping and finally to production scale.

After gaining my Diploma Engineer for Chemical Engineering, I started at West in 1989 in Process Engineering. Afterwards, I changed to Technical Customer Services and later to Product Development. I like working with different teams, and I love knowing that our products contribute to the fight against disease.”
