Wyeth is one of the world’s largest research-driven pharmaceutical and health care products companies. The firm selected Primus to provide design-build services for a highly automated -22°, 86,000 SF facility. This facility served as the first large scale storage and distribution center for “FluMist” nasal influenza vaccines.
Implementation of the thermal envelope included strict regulatory compliance of deep frozen applications for pharmaceutical distribution. The facility features an automated storage retrieval system (AS/RS) operating in redundant pairs of 75 foot high, 13,500 SF, 1,200 pallet main freezers. Pick and pack operations were maintained at a constant 65° with no tolerance for humidity variances above 50%.
