Pharmaserv inaugurates a new logistics centre at the Behringwerke site.
Industry park operator Pharmaserv GmbH & Co. KG held a ceremony to inaugurate M486, the new building in the Görzhausen section.
The addition of another 4,000 m2 to the logistics centre has created space for another 4,500 pallets. This means that the site operator in Marburg now has 8,000 m2 of warehouse space available for sensitive drugs that have to be stored in temperature ranges from 2 to 8 degrees Celsius and from 15 to 25 degrees Celsius Founded in 2015, the Pharmaserv Logistics brand has therefore now met the conditions required for national and international growth besides providing logistics services for the companies located at the Behringwerke site.
“Six million Euros were invested in the extension,” said Pharmaserv’s CEO Thomas Janssen in his welcome speech. “The building plans had to contend with difficult topography besides relocating a road. We also paid close attention to creating a harmonious energy and building concept,” added Thomas Janssen. Ice storage technology, solar collectors and modern heat pump technology are all used. Together with concrete core activation inside the building for distributing energy evenly, this combination ensures that 84% of the energy required is generated from renewable sources.
The guest of honour, Hesse’s Minister of Finance Dr. Thomas Schäfer, congratulated Pharmaserv on its new logistics centre and emphasised the value of efficient logistics. “Many companies have now recognised that good logistics are a competitive advantage. This is exactly why it is extremely important to have a Europe without borders,” said Dr. Schäfer.

Our next goal is to expand the international logistic services for temperature-sensitive freight to the biotech and pharmaceutical industries.”
