Helping a South West pharmaceutical manufacturer to a trouble-free production line expansion

The Pharmaceuticals sector has presented UK-based IES with the opportunity to carve a successful niche in programme management for equipment and factory relocations. Pharmaceutical companies such as GE Healthcare, OCD and Patheon use high value, precision plant for their processes – and, as customers of IES, regularly count on them whenever complex moves have to be made to tight deadlines.

When a factory relocation is needed, business continuity means that the move has to be put in the hands of a suitable specialist service provider. A plant move for a South West pharmaceutical manufacturer successfully utilised the skills and experience which IES regularly applies to the special requirements of biotech and pharmaceutical companies.

Supporting the global pharmaceutical industry

Since its foundation in 1991, IES has built an enviable reputation for completing large and small equipment, process and factory relocations for primary and secondary pharmaceuticals firms, biotech companies, pharmaceutical research companies, laboratories and R&D centres. Anywhere, in fact, associated with researching and manufacturing pharmaceuticals, where there’s simply no room for lost production or damaged equipment due to an imperfect move.

Comprehensive support for pharmaceuticals businesses

In the case of a South West pharmaceutical manufacturer, IES involvement during a recent clean room production line expansion drew on comprehensive installation and logistical support including the following services:

  • Rigging and move-out of a production line
  • Project management of equipment move-in and installation
  • Export packing (anti-vibration pallets and vapour barrier bags)
  • Sea freight, Customs Clearance, Delivery
  • Offloading, move-in, positioning, levelling and assembly

Another smooth, successful relocation

The result, typical of the moves IES regularly undertakes for leading pharmaceutical companies, was another smooth, successful project that helped a South West pharmaceutical manufacturer meet its demanding relocation and production targets. A professional service was accompanied by a cost-effective and convenient one-stop solution.
