Cold Chain Center is opening soon.

Bushu is nearing completion of its 3,900-square-meter (42,000-sq.-ft.) cold chain warehouse facility at its Misato plant north of Tokyo. The new facility will be commissioned and validated by September of this year for storage of temperature-controlled sterile drugs and biologics for the Japanese market. The new facility is an important component in the company’s “Asia hub” strategy which enables international pharmaceutical companies to import bulk products into Japan for quality inspection, labeling, packaging and distribution throughout Japan and other Asian countries

“We are excited about our capital expansion plans,” said Tadao Takano, Bushu’s Chief Operating Officer. “Our Asia hub strategy is coming to life. The added space and additional inspection lines will allow us to bring more of our client’s bulk products into the country, which will make their logistics and supply chain systems much more efficient.”
