Cobeco Pharma invests in a fifth automated filling line with new ‘state-of-the-art’ machinery

After finishing the expansion of the warehouse in January 2021, Cobeco Pharma is excited to now announce the investment in new ‘state-of-the-art’ machinery and the addition of the fifth automated filling line. The warehouse expansion realized extra available space to upscale the production, as well. This led to the opportunity to invest in a new full-body sleeve machine and the fifth automated filling line to their current production and packaging machinery.

“The addition of the fifth automated filling line is an investment we are very proud of, as it will help us a lot to improve the service to our client. Also the new total full body sleeve machine is a big improvement with a capacity of more than 10.000 pieces a day. We are dedicated to delivering the best and quickest service to our clients. So we had to upgrade the machinery to keep up with the growing demands. Since the start of COVID-19, we have seen major growths in our sales in 2020, so the expansion was definitely necessary”, a company spokesperson says.

“With the various products we produce every day and the many orders that vary extensively, we have to switch frequently between products that we have to fill during the day. Efficiency is key to maintain top speed in our production, but the continuous switching interrupts the pace. Adding the fifth full automated filing line improves the efficiency as we can fill more product now. It increases the amount of daily produced products and the total number of different products produced at the same time.”

Cobeco Pharma is still planning on improvements for the future, as the daily production is rising above 30,000 products a day and is expected to rise even more. The company aims to create an ultimately efficient process to keep the service at a top-level for the clients, for instance, to create shorter delivery windows. The improvements in the production process with the warehouse expansion and investment in ‘state-of-the-art’ machinery are the beginning of a future-proof operation with more improvements to come.
