Pharma warehousing boosts Jet Environmental

Solihull, Warwickshire, UK: Jet Environmental, which supplies warehouses temperature and humidity control systems reports growth in the pharmaceutical market.

Jason Hibbs, managing director, Jet Environmental says: “Warehouses that store pharmaceutical products must comply with MHRA regulations. Even ‘ambient’ requires a level of control to limit the maximum internal temperature.”

“In addition, manufacturers stipulate product-specific recommendations that often have more stringent temperature tolerances than the MHRA. For pharmaceutical businesses, this requires a Responsible Person to constantly monitor and provide continual compliance reporting, which can add pressure to businesses. Our aim is to relieve that pressure.”

The company specialises in the sector, with many successful installations in large and niche operations.  “We offer a complete environmental solution to drug manufacturers and distributors. This comprises bespoke system design, quick installation and a solution that monitors itself from a matrix of sensors,” he says.

“System monitoring and self-adjustment is recorded for proof of environmental compliance, with the added facility of remote connections to smartphones. And it’s working: we estimate that over 50% of medicines prescribed in the UK pass through a warehouse distribution centre where the temperate has been controlled by Jet Environmental.”

However, mechanical cooling can be an expensive issue for pharmaceutical businesses. Jet Environmental designs systems that incorporate free cooling techniques and smart control philosophies that minimise cooling plant operation where possible. This reduces cost and also decreases the carbon footprint of any given warehouse. 

“Our goal is to become the ‘go to’ provider of temperature control systems for the pharmaceutical sector and I think we’re well on the way” Hibbs says.
