Actavis officially opens a new warehouse at its Bulebel site
25 JUN 2014 / Actavis plc (NYSE: ACT), a leading specialty pharmaceutical company, today held an opening ceremony for a new warehouse at its Bulebel site. The opening ceremony was attended by Prime Minister Dr Joseph Muscat, Minister for the Economy, Investment and Small Business, Dr Chris Cardona and other distinguished guests.
The close to EUR 13 million investment consists of a 4,800 square meter warehouse with a capacity for storing ~7,500 pallet positions and includes a remarkable number of sustainable building features that are designed to minimize the impact on the environment, such as the utilization of solar thermal energy and hot water, lighting systems controlled according to occupancy and rain harvesting systems.
Actavis employs over 750 people on the island, making the company one of the largest employers in the country. The need for this new warehouse arises from a significant increase in manufacturing output from the site in Bulebel, where the volume has practically tripled over the last 7 years.
In his presentation Wayne Swanton, Sr VP, Global Manufacturing & Supply Chain, thanked the Malta employees, as well as the local authorities, in particular Malta Enterprise and Malta Industrial Parks, for their support that contributed to the success of this project and through the years.
