ABN – Resolve Capacity has been awarded a US$20 million contract for the development of a pharmaceutical warehouse in Nairobi.
The facility will be used to supply medicine to all stakeholders in East Africa and will allow healthcare suppliers to meet their patients’ needs with more efficiency.
Resolve Capacity managing executive Arno Haigh said: "While pharmaceutical warehouses and stores are largely invisible to patients, they are essential to ensuring that health commodities are available and maintained in compliant, quality facilities.
"Poorly constructed, maintained or managed storage facilities put products at risk of damage, diversion or expiry all of which puts health programmes and patients' health in jeopardy."
The company will design and construct the temperature controlled warehouse.
Haigh added: "All aspects of materials storage handling and equipment will also be undertaken from the design through to tenders, procurement, installation and commissioning."
Operations at the facility are scheduled to commence in October of this year.
