Envirotainer invests in opening a new U.S. Headquarter and Cold Chain Competence Center in New York. The office will be launched during Q4 2014/Q1 2015 and will be managed by Envirotainer Deputy CEO, Mr. Mattias Almgren. This initiative will strengthen Envirotainer’s sales coverage in the Americas and complement Envirotainer’s well-established Operations and Logistics Center in Dallas.
The new office will be staffed with Cold Chain Specialists that will focus on and support the needs of the key stakeholders in the life science temperature controlled supply chain.
This investment followed the recent approval of Envirotainer’s RKN e1 container by the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) for use on US flag carriers, which cemented Envirotainer’s continued commitment to the life science industries in the United States, including North and South America, and any other country trading with the U.S.
Envirotainer CEO, Mr. Simon Angeldorff commented: "This marks yet another milestone for Envirotainer. We have seen unprecedented demand for our solutions this year – and with the FAA approval of our RKN e1 container and the new office and staff in New York, we look forward to be able to serve our customers in a historically and contemporary unequalled manner."
Envirotainer CSO, Mr. Björn Siloo, said: "Investing for the benefit of customers and partners in our most important markets is a trademark of Envirotainer. We strongly believe that by sharing our knowledge and expertise, gained by leading the market of maintaining the integrity of temperature sensitive pharmaceutical products, is how we can best serve and grow with this industry; an industry designed to improve quality of life and to save lives that we are proud to be part of."
