Global independent provider laboratory solutions and services, VWR celebrated the opening of its new kitting center in Skalice, Czech Republic.
This new facility will support the growing business of Therapak (that VWR acquired in 2016) by expanding its existing footprint in Europe with a state-of-the-art facility and comprehensive kitting services for regional and global customers.
Therapak, a leading supplier of pre-packaged convenience kits and procedure packs for the clinical trial, pharmaceutical and clinical laboratory industries, has proven to be a valued addition to the VWRCATALYST Clinical and Biorepository Services
Along with the recent acquisitions of MESM and EPL Archives, VWRCATALYST Clinical and Biorepository Services offers a complete solution to its global regulated research and product development clients in the pharma, biopharma, manufacturing and clinical trial industries. Our focus is to eliminate the process complexities and identify service solutions that help labs and production facilities work better, faster and smarter.
"VWR's Czech Republic facility is strategically located to support customers in the EMEA region for all their clinical and commercial kitting needs," said Ulf Kepper, SVP, Services for VWR. "This location expands our VWRCATALYST offering to support the growing demand for quality services to the industries we support."
The 35,000 ft2 facility will be fully operational on 2 October, 2017, and is in proximity to major industrial freight carrier hubs, which is ideal for shipping and will allow enhanced service levels compared to VWR's current model.
