Automatic and semi‐automatic conditioning

To meet the requirements from the wide variety of client request, the company is organized into several types of manufacturing labs with a capacity to produce up to 750.000 bottles per month.

‐ The semi‐automatic conditioning units allow a large flexibility. Needless to say that VDLV’s staff is perfectly qualified ahearing to the environment with highest level of rules on Health and Safety.

‐ At the end of 2013, VDLV invested in the acquisition of an automatic line conditioning engine capable of treating a greater volume. This engine was
specially designed to integrate all the specificities required for the production of pharmaceutical e‐liquids.

 

Toll Manufacturing

With Vincent dans les Vapes, VDLV is one of the few e‐liquids producers allowing each consumer to choose its nicotine rate (from 0 to 9 mg/ml). This customized service is provided by having the ability to manufacture small quantities of product.

Meanwhile, VDLV is able to supply its distributors with the 3 major nicotine rates considered as market standards. Each month, VDLV produces up to 500.000 bottles of e‐liquids.

METHODOLOGY

VDLV manages its production through a quality framework based on the ISO 22.000 standards, focusing on the safety and respect of the product required at each key stage of the e‐liquid manufacturing

Each e‐liquid flask is assigned a unique batch number which allows trackability of the quality of our products, starting at the begining of our production process through to the finished product. It captures the following information:

– Name of the supplier, number of batch and analysis certificates of the raw materials used,
– Manufacture date and analysis certificates of nicotine bases,
– Manufacture and conditioning date of the e‐liquid,
– The names of each operator at each stage of processing to ensure complete tracking through every step of production.
