Envirotainer’s recent investment in Europe and Asia

Envirotainer, the global market leader in secure cold chain solutions for shipment of pharmaceuticals, has extensively expanded its production site in Rosersberg, Sweden in Europe continent. This site is the largest in the world in terms of output, able to build more units each year than any other. It’s also been designed to allow further expansion in the future.

Peter Gisel-Ekdahl, Envirotainer CEO, opened the expanded facility this month and thanked employees for working tirelessly to boost production, meeting the needs of the pharmaceutical industry now and in the future.

Sofie Nordhamren, Head of Quality Control and Production Manager at Envirotainer said, “The demand for our services has been sky-high since the start of the pandemic. The need to safely transport pharmaceuticals while minimising wasted space in precious air cargo has increased dramatically.

If we talk about Asia, here the company has opened a new CryoSure® station in Singapore.

The CryoSure® station in Singapore sits near one of the largest airports in the world for international cargo traffic and a major hub for Asia and Pacific (APAC). This puts -70°C cryogenic shipping within reach of the fastest growing region in the pharmaceutical logistics market.

The new site complements Envirotainer’s existing presence in Singapore, ensures high global service levels and allows express orders throughout APAC.

With this new addition to Envirotainer’s broad global network, customers will benefit from more efficient logistics. It not only improves the offering for customers in terms of speed and availability, but also sustainability.

CryoSure® is the most sustainable solution of its type on the market. The reusable dewars are noticeably less bulky than others and have two to three times better weight to volume efficiency compared to existing dry-ice boxes and liquid nitrogen (LN2) solutions. This translates into both significantly reduced transportation costs, as well as significantly lower carbon emissions.

With CryoSure® now available on a global scale, it will be possible to ensure vital treatments can be where and when needed quickly in most of Europe, North America and Asia. Expansion of the network will continue.

Tower’s latest container available for free demonstrations

Tower Cold Chain’s latest product for smaller pharmaceutical shipments, the KTEvolution container offering protection, security, and visibility in a small box, is now available for demonstration globally, at the company’s Centres of Excellence in the EMEA, APAC and Americas regions.

The KTEvolution is the most recent addition to the temperature-controlled specialist’s product range and is available in 26-litre and 57-litre options, offering a new lightweight and cost-effective solution for the pharmaceutical supply chain.

Demonstrations will be held at Tower’s three Centres of Excellence in Reading, UK, Philadelphia, USA and Singapore where customers and prospects can gain tangible insights and observe the KTE’s benefits and features in real-time.

Hosted by Tower’s sales team, customers will have unmediated access to experts during the demonstration process and can ask detailed questions to help inform purchase decisions.

Upon request, customers can also book a demonstration at their own location, where a Tower Cold Chain sales representative can organise a suitable date and time for customers within one working day.

This complementary offer comes after the KTEvolution’s successful debut at LogiPharma and CPHI Frankfurt in 2022.

Niall Balfour, CEO, Tower Cold Chain says, “We have seen a significant interest following this year’s exhibition season, after showcasing the KTEvolution for the first time. The KTEvolution fills a gap in the cold chain market and provides a more compact, light-weight option that we feel many industries, customers and patients will be able to benefit from.”

“We have found in-person demonstrations to be far more beneficial to our customers as they allow for a more in-depth insight into Tower’s products. We are delighted to be able to offer this service for the KTEvolution.”

The reduced weight and easy-to-handle nature of the KTEvolution makes it an ideal option for smaller shipments such as direct-to-patient, samples shipment, and last-mile deliveries.

The KTEvolution range will be available across a full temperature range, capable of transporting pharmaceuticals, life-science, and biotech products that require an internal temperature of -80°c, -60°c, -20°c, +5°c, +20°C and can provide 120+ hours of insulation without requiring any external power source or intervention.
