Va-Q-tec opens Latin America site

Montevideo, Uruguay: Va-Q-tec, has a new Latin American head office and site in Montevideo.

The new site will function as a key hub for Va-Q-tec’s rental services and as a fulfillment station from July.

“The opening of our new Latin American facility is a testament to our commitment to grow the business and expand our local client base” said Joachim Kuhn, chief executive, Va-Q-tec.

“Montevideo, being a central distribution hub for the Southern Cone, with state-of-the art airport facilities and easy access to major roads across the country as well as in close proximity to other pharmaceutical centers in Latin America, is the perfect location for this mission. So, with our new hub we will offer our current and future customers the best solutions for their temperature controlled logistics needs.”

Christopher J Storch, global head of sales, Va-Q-tec said: “With our new facility we meet and exceed the demands of our top pharma clients, which recently appointed va-Q-tec as main supplier for temperature controlled logistics services. Additionally, having a head office in Uruguay further strengthens our position in facilitating the growth of the pharmaceutical industry in Latin America.”

“The importance of va-Q-tec’s advanced transport and thermal insulation technology to pharmaceutical companies has been a fundamental factor behind choosing Uruguay as its regional head office. It is also an ideal gateway to other Latin American countries,” the company said.

“With sustained growth in Uruguay’s service sector and several public initiatives to attract foreign investments, Uruguay’s appeal to international companies continues to grow. In particular, pharmaceutical manufacturers are increasingly choosing Uruguay as the location for their regional distributional centers. va-Q-tec will be well placed to provide services to this cluster of pharmaceutical companies, as well as to provide high technology containers for clients in Uruguay, Chile, Argentina, Paraguay, Brazil and other countries in order to transport highly sensitive product.”
