There should be no compromises in supplying medicinal products quickly and safely. That is exactly the standard GEHE Pharma Handel GmbH applies when it delivers to more than 6,500 pharmacies across Germany from a total of 18 branches up to four times a day. To ensure pharmaceutical products can be kept in perfectly refrigerated storage, GEHE invested in two new Viessmann cold room complexes based on TectoCell Standard Plus.
Thanks to the two new Viessmann cold rooms, GEHE managed to expand its capacity for refrigerated pharmaceuticals dramatically. "We've increased the volume by a quarter compared to before the change. That's hugely important since the market is expanding rapidly. The demand for medicinal products which need to be refrigerated increases by six to ten percent every year," says Thomas Merkle, Logistics Project Manager at GEHE Pharma Handel GmbH.
The high-end TectoCell Standard Plus cold rooms by Viessmann are ideally suited for use in the pharmaceuticals sector as they are heavily thermally insulated and, consequently, highly energy efficient. The SmartProtec antimicrobial powder coating prevents hygiene risks as does the seamless underlapping stainless steel floor.
