Team Lead Packaging


       Locatie: Oud-Beijerland, Zuid-Holland         


At TIO, a pharmaceutical manufacturer based in Oud-Beijerland, we're evolving from a producer offering a wide range of products for local markets to a specialist providing a selective range for global markets. In every instance, we collaborate with partners to translate great ideas into tangible solutions for patients.

Over the past 30 years, as a healthy family business, we've built a team of over 400 professionals, encompassing both generalists and specialists, dedicated to developing, formulating, producing, and analyzing to continually improve together each day. Partnering with entities like local pharmacies, generic companies serving European markets, or innovative global pharmaceutical firms, we strive to reliably deliver the right medicine to the right patient in a timely manner.

We embody our ambition by consistently investing in our people and facilities. With recent FDA approvals, the United States has become a significant market for us. This has reinforced our confidence to continue on our path—fulfilling our unique role in local markets responsibly while developing and manufacturing specialized medicines for partners worldwide, always keeping the patient at the forefront, right at the end of the production line.
