Cool Containers expands production and testing capacity

Marietta, OH, US: Cool Containers, which develops and manufactures controlled environment solutions for the secure transport of high value products, has made recent investments to expand its existing environmental testing capacity three-fold.

This has been done to keep pace with production of the company’s active containers, accommodate qualification requests from pharmaceutical customers, and for use in activities related to new product development.  Construction is on schedule for completion by end of March 2012.

The new environmental rooms, designed to accurately maintain a range of controlled temperatures, can reach extremes from -40ºC to +60ºC, and are used for extensive testing of all container units coming through production.  Director of manufacturing, Carl Hauptmann says: “It’s part of our quality manufacturing procedure to put each of our active containers through rigorous ambient test profiles to ensure that we meet and exceed our specifications.  We confirm that every one of our containers can maintain cargo at the set temperature in simulated environments that far exceed what they would normally experience during transport.”

Cool Containers’ first product, the PharmaPort 360, is an actively controlled container for pallet-sized loads of pharmaceuticals, and is available through the UPS Temperature True service.
