About David M. Jones

Following a 28 year career at Glatt Air Techniques, Inc. David M. Jones recently departed to begin a practice as an independent consultant, establishing OWI-Consulting. As Vice President for the Pharmaceutical Services Division at Glatt, he was responsible for a range of initiatives both domestically and internationally. These included supporting existing and prospective customers in product and process development, scale-up projects (laboratory to pilot to production), troubleshooting for all phases of development and manufacturing, and operator and staff training programs. Jones was the organizer and course director for the Glatt Air Techniques, Inc. hands-on Process Training Seminar, an event attracting an average of 70 attendees on a semi-annual basis. He also was responsible for developing and presenting more than 50 custom training seminars for industry clients. A frequently invited lecturer, he has spoken at AAPS Symposia (national and regional meetings), the Philadelphia and New Jersey Pharmaceutical Discussion Groups, the TTC (Technology Training Center) in Germany, as well as for several vendor organized symposia (Degussa-Huls, Colorcon, Lasentech, etc.) and the FDA (Office of Generic Drugs and the CDER Office of Compliance, Division of Manufacturing and Product Quality). A second area of responsibility was as a process consultant for the formulation development group at Glatt. For the equipment division, he was an initiator of Glatt’s global standard for machine and insert configuration, and routinely was the process representative for the design and specification of machinery for clients of the company. This included the functionality of the DataPlus line of process controls developed and marketed in the United States.

Jones studied mechanical and electrical engineering at the University of Delaware. Prior to joining Glatt, he was on the Process Development staff at Stuart Pharmaceuticals (then a division of ICI Americas) in Newark, Delaware. He has published more than 15 articles, five book chapters, and is the recipient of seven U.S. patents, including the technique known as the Wurster HS (patented by Glatt Air Techniques, Inc.).
