The story

In order to meet the growing demand for insulin injector cartridges and other high-value packaging components, West Pharma decided to expand its global manufacturing operations to a new site.

The solution

Hosting a pharmaceutical manufacture, the building required specific material and equipment to comply with health regulations, as well as flexibility to allow further activity extensions. Core advised and provided a hot dipped galvanised cable basket solution from the OBO Betterman range of products, with bespoke dimensions to match the facility structure and fire rated junction boxes to be used in conjunction with the emergency lighting system.

The success

As well as meeting the security levels required by this type of construction the fast connect coupling system of the OBO GRM product supplied enabled the contractor to achieve a faster and more effective install.
