The Tube is designed to achieve industry-leading sustainability standards and is aiming to support carbon-neutral operation. Frasers Property Industrial and the General Contractor Goldbeck International have commenced construction onsite following the demolition phase in which 82,500 tons of demolition and raw materials have been recycled in an ongoing effort to lower carbon emissions.

We highly appreciate their trust in our company and are looking forward to celebrate with an opening ceremony.”

 

“It’s a fantastic location with strong transport links to support distribution and it’s also being designed as a first-class working environment, with a focus on sustainability, as well as employee health and wellbeing. As a company that is committed to supporting our planet and people, we know how important it is for our customers as well, and we’re pleased to be able to deliver this next-generation facility and workplace for Pharmaserv Logistics.”

 

North Rhine-Westphalia is one of the largest pharmaceutical production locations in Germany and Pharmaserv Logistics is investing heavily for growth in this area.

 

Dr. Martin Egger, Managing Director, Pharmaserv GmbH, said: “The greater Düsseldorf region is a strong pharmaceutical hub and being able to operate from The Tube will help us to further expand. Thanks to its excellent infrastructure connections, it means we can reach our customers faster and operate more efficiently. We already have a major customer in the immediate vicinity that we will be able to supply with customised production-related logistics services when we move into our new home at The Tube.”

 

"As a new facility, the interior fit-out will be tailored to our business needs and meet the GxP-requirements of the pharmaceutical industry which made The Tube an attractive choice for the expansion of our operations.”
