READING, UK March 14th, 2017 – TOWER Cold Chain Solutions announces opening of Asia-Pacific Corporate office facility in Singapore. The corporate office, TOWER Cold Chain Solutions Pte Ltd., will provide support for strategic growth across the Asia-Pacific region

TOWER Cold Chain Solutions, suppliers of the KryoTrans® range of passive thermal containers, has extended its global reach by opening a corporate office in Singapore. The Singapore ‘hub’ is the first of several facilities that will be opened across the Asia-Pacific region.

Investment by TOWER in the Asia-Pacific region has been driven by the increasing adoption of passive reusable packaging solutions and increasing demand from the pharmaceutical cold-chain market across the region.

“As our customer-base has grown, so has the need to provide Asia-Pacific-based support services” explained Chris Pollard, Chief Executive Officer, TOWER Cold Chain Solutions. “TOWER has excellent relationships with our existing partners, of which we are very proud, and opening our facility in Singapore shows that we have listened to our clients and is the first step in establishing a strong network across this crucial region”.

Flexible rental of the KryoTrans® range provides:
• Robust, passive reusable temperature-controlled solution
• Up to 10 days’ product protection
• Cost-effective rental programme
• Global reach with expanding network
• Ease-of-use with minimal human intervention
• Pre-conditioning for multiple temperature ranges: Controlled-Room-Temperature (+15°C to +25°C); Refrigerated (+2°C to +8°C) and Frozen (-15°C to -25°C)

Robert Paterson, TOWER’s Commercial & Operations Consultant for the Asia-Pacific region added “Our clients expect cost-effectiveness coupled with operational flexibility, but important to their supply chain is the unrivalled ease-of-use of the KT and KTM ranges, minimising intervention and thus human error. We look forward to helping support our existing Asia-Pacific customers and, of course, welcoming new customers as they come on board.”
