B Medical Systems Significantly Expands Manufacturing Capacity to Support COVID Vaccination Campaign Worldwide
B Medical Systems , a global leader in the vaccine cold chain, has significantly expanded its production capacity at its Luxembourg facility. The global roll-out of COVID-19 vaccines created an unprecedented demand for vaccine cold chain solutions and expansion of the production facility was necessary to meet the global demand. The new factory expansion of around 4,500 m2 was built in six months and will create around 150 additional jobs. The expansion will help the company double its production capacity for vaccine cold chain units and increase production capacity for Ultra-Low Freezers fivefold.
