Aaron Degagne, CFA Equity Analyst

Business Strategy and Outlook

| Karen Andersen, CFA |

West Pharmaceutical Services is the global market leader in primary packaging and delivery components for injectable therapeutics. Primary packaging is the material that first envelops a drug product, and safe production of drug-delivery packaging is critical for the successful delivery of pharmaceutical products. Packaging must ensure drugs don’t leak into the surrounding material and vice versa. Because of the mission-critical nature of these components, it’s important for customers to trust the quality of manufacturing and design.
