The realization of a new automation project at Uniphar (Ireland) is completely on schedule. Taking COVID-19 into account, Inther Group has made every effort to be able to safely carry out the planned work together with the client, which caused no delay in the overall planning.
At the end of June 2020, Inther Group started on-site with the installation and construction of the new intralogistics, culminating in the construction of the 36 meter long A-Frame. Inther Group’s renewed A-Frame plays an essential role in this future operation. The A-Frame is an ideal solution in the pharmaceutical world because of the fast processing of complex orders. In this project, various innovative solutions from Inther Group come together in a total concept that is controlled by the Inther LC software system (WES).
In the next phase, functional testing of the delivered systems will start. In addition, the rest of the installation including two miniload cranes will be further built up.
Uniphar is one of the largest players in the pharmaceutical market and now supplies 160 countries worldwide. Ireland’s hospitals and pharmacies are supplied directly from the 4,400 m2 DC in Annacotty. This distribution center will be equipped by Inther Group with a fully automated logistics system that can process up to 4,500 order lines per hour. To achieve this, Inther Group has designed a system in which both proven and innovative technologies are combined in one total solution.
