Envirotainer to merge with va-Q-tec

[ July 28, 2023   //   ]

Pharmaceutical logistics specialist Envirotainer and thermal insulation company va-Q-tec have gained approval from the Austrian and German competition authorities for a merger.

Envirotainer said va-Q-tec’s offering of advanced passive boxes and containers that maintain temperatures from -180°C to +20°C without external energy input would be a perfect match for its own solutions, which include active Unit Load Device (ULD) Containers, (using battery powered compressor cooling and electric heating technology) and the CryoSure -70°C dry ice shipping solution.

Preparations for the integration have already started, and the full combination is expected to be in place during the second half of 2024.

Va-Q-tec’s non-pharma operations, providing cold chain for food, and vacuum insulation, will continue to operate separately.
