The India facility is its latest in the company’s ongoing plans to add service centres to support its expanded offerings
Peli BioThermal, a provider of temperature-controlled packaging solutions, has announced the opening of a service centre located in India. The centre is based in Ahmedabad, a major manufacturing hub for pharma companies in the Western part of India.
The facility is a full service network station offering conditioning and refurbishment services for the company’s bulk shippers, aimed to meet rising demand in the region.
“This is the latest development of our rapidly expanding Crēdo on Demand rental programme,” said Dominic Hyde, Peli BioThermal VP, Global Services. “Ahmedabad is a key site where more than eight of India’s largest pharma companies have multiple plants operating, which are all major exporters to markets in Europe and the US.
“Our market-leading, high-performing products will be readily available for our customers in the region, which is an area of significant growth for multiple clinical research organisations conducting clinical trials, another area of growth in India. Peli BioThermal’s new India service centre is the latest location in our growing global drop points, service centres and network stations, supporting rental programs to more than 100 locations, as we continue to extensively expand our infrastructure worldwide to better meet the complex needs of our international customers.”
It’s estimated the state of Gujarat, where Ahmedabad is located, accounts for approximately 30% of the country’s pharmaceutical production and exports, Peli says. Within the global pharma market India provides more than 50% of the worldwide requirement for various vaccines and 40% of the demand for generic products in the United States.
