Krka, a manufacturer of generic pharmaceuticals based in Slowenia, has commissioned Swisslog to design and implement an automated high-bay warehouse. The order value amounts to approximately MEUR 18 (approx. MCHF 22). Swisslog had already delivered a similar solution for Krka about 10 years ago.
Krka has been recording strong business growth in the past years. The automated warehouse to be delivered by Swisslog will support a new production facility that Krka is building at the company's headquarters in Novo mesto. "We are pleased to providing our longtime client Krka once again with a high-performance logistics solution that meets its needs," explains Daniel Hauser, Managing Director Warehouse & Distribution Solutions at Swisslog Switzerland.
Swisslog's services include the installation of materials handling equipment such as stacker cranes, conveyor systems and automated guided vehicles. It will also provide the software and controls and assume responsibility for the overall integration of systems. Swisslog will support Krka in the start-up of the new high-bay warehouse which is planned to be operational in the second half of 2014. Krka produces and sells prescription pharmaceuticals, non-prescription products and animal health products in over 70 countries.
