Tower Cold Chain opens new premises to support continuing growth

Pharmaceutical thermal protection specialist Tower Cold Chain is opening a new global headquarters.

Located close to its existing premises in Theale, just 30 minutes from London Heathrow Airport, the 26,000 sq ft building will greatly expand Tower’s container conditioning and storage capacities, as well as enhancing its design, laboratory and testing capabilities in the development of robust, reliable and reusable temperature-controlled pharmaceutical supply chain solutions.

The new headquarters features a special Innovation Centre and additional office space which is available for customer use, providing opportunities for meetings and product assessments, as well as the investigation and development of enhancements and new technologies.

In addition, the expanded laboratory facilities will further strengthen Tower’s testing and qualification capabilities and include two new environmental test chambers with a larger capacity for qualification and development of new product ranges.

“This is another important milestone in the continued growth of Tower,” commented Niall Balfour, Tower’s CEO.

“We are experiencing increasing demand for our range of services to support the fast and efficient distribution of temperature-critical pharmaceuticals and life science products, ensuring they maintain their efficacy to deliver the best result for the end-patient.

“The additional space and facilities in our new premises further strengthen our collaborative approach, which is at the heart of every project, and will enable us to react even more quickly to customer requests.”

The UK headquarters will also support Tower’s growing global network of strategically located hubs throughout Europe, the USA, Asia-Pacific, India and South Africa improving both proximity and availability of containers.
