Vetter to invest further millions in the construction of a modern centre for visual inspection and logistics in Ravensburg

Ravensburg-based Vetter is expanding further. Last Friday, Vetter, a specialist in aseptically pre-filled drug-delivery systems, held a ceremony to break the ground for the construction of a new centre for visual inspection and logistics. Together with representatives from politics and industry, the company’s executives broke the ground for the new facility, which is estimated to cost more than 30 million euros. The construction of the new centre for visual inspection and logistics in the Ravensburg Erlen industrial estate is scheduled for completion by the end of 2011.

The investment in this state-of-the-art centre for visual inspection and logistics is intended to broaden the base of the company’s global market supply and to enable safe and timely product delivery to its customers, which include 19 of the world’s 20 largest pharmaceuticals producers. The new centre, which will mainly be constructed by local companies, will create the basis for future growth and continued positive business development.

“Our new centre for visual inspection and logistics is an investment in the strategic partnership with our national and international clients,” said Vetter Managing Director Thomas Otto, adding “the facility will help the company to further improve visual inspection and logistics processes, and optimised personnel and material flows will enable safe and timely product delivery”.

Once completed, the new centre will mainly use renewable energies and is designed to function at the highest possible energy efficiency. The front walls of the buildings will be equipped with photovoltaic cells. In addition, the company will harness geothermal energy, excess energy and will install a modern and environmentally friendly biogas-fired block heat and power plant.
