Completes structural work in less than 12 months
Structural work is completed at Vetter’s state-of-the-art centre for visual inspection and logistics
Structural work on Vetter's new German facility, Ravensburg Vetter West, has been completed within 11 months of groundbreaking. As scheduled, the specialist in aseptically pre-filled drug delivery systems concluded structural work on its centre for visual inspection and high-bay warehouse for cold-storage and room-temperature products.
Interior work and the construction of an environmentally friendly power supply system will be finished towards the end of this year, when operations will begin. In addition to photovoltaics and biogas, the facility will also use geothermal sources of power.
The company has invested €31m in the project. The facility will employ more than 230 staff.
Vetter says the Ravensburg facility offers efficient and reliable quality control processes and material supply. To respond to growing demand for stability tests, the centre will offer advanced-design stability chambers, with expanded capacity for long-term testing under a range of temperatures.
'Our new facility combines efficiency and sustainability, and its advanced processes support a high level of product and delivery security,’ said Thomas Otto, managing director of Vetter.
‘Our investment both in the facility and in renewable energy testifies to our commitment to the region. In Erlen, we are laying important groundwork for Vetter's continuing growth and success on the world market.’
