Pelican BioThermal, a leading global provider of innovative temperature-controlled packaging solutions for the life sciences industry, has announced the opening of its new Asia headquarters in Singapore.
Announcement of the new operational facility in Singapore signals a significant development in Pelican BioThermal’s expanding presence and support network in Asia. The location will be the central base for the company’s Asia sales office, Crēdo on Demand rental fleet depot and will also be the regional distribution hub for their Crēdo reusable and Chronos single use ranges of temperature controlled shippers.
The Pelican BioThermal Asia headquarters is also the location for the company’s Asia based, state-of-the-art service centre, providing capabilities to refurbish and repair the Crēdo reusable line of shippers. The new office will be co-located with Pelican BioThermal’s distributor for Singapore, Enviropac.
The latest development follows the company’s recent announcement of its partnership with Zuellig Pharma in Asia and further enhances the extensive range of products and services offered by Pelican BioThermal in the region.
This new Singapore centre is the latest advancement in the ongoing global expansion programme by Pelican BioThermal who, in the past 12 months, has opened successful service centres for Asia, the UK and the US East Coast.
With the current US$10 billion global cold chain industry predicted to grow further, Pelican BioThermal continues to lead the way by providing thermal technology solutions. Asia is an area of pronounced growth for Pelican BioThermal, so providing critical capabilities through its extensive network to deliver and manage assets in all regions, precisely meets its customers business needs.
“As the global cold chain logistics industry continues to grow and evolve we are demonstrating how Pelican BioThermal is at the forefront of this expanding marketplace and has the capabilities to support the growing Asia pharma sector,” said David Williams, president of Pelican BioThermal.
“Expanding our global footprint with the addition of this regional headquarters in Asia, will be particularly beneficial for our growing customer base, who operate worldwide themselves. The new capabilities for distribution, service and support demonstrate our commitment to our customers and their operations in the Asia region.”
