Leading wholesaler opens state-of-the-art new distribution centre as it seeks to grow its position in the pharmaceuticals distribution market
The EBOS Group are set to move into a new era of healthcare distribution following the opening of the state-of-the-art new distribution centre in Sydney’s west.
Operating as part of EBOS’ Healthcare Logistics (HCL) business, the new $15 million, 25,000 sq m facility, located in the suburb of Pemulwuy has been sized for growth and positions the company to capture market share.
“We have invested heavily in the development of this facility as part of our strategy to target
growth and new opportunities in the pre-wholesale healthcare market,” EBOS General Manager
Healthcare Logistics Michael Broome said.
“The landscape of Australia’s healthcare supply chain is constantly evolving and as dedicated
healthcare specialists, we believe we are well suited to service this market.”
The facility was opened last Friday by NSW Minister for Health, Brad Hazzard, who joined EBOS CEO John Cullity in a ceremonial ribbon cutting.
“This incredible new facility for EBOS is testament to the forward thinking culture of EBOS in the
healthcare market in Australia and I welcome it’s preparedness to locate itself in Western Sydney
where it brings new jobs and new opportunities for the community,” Mr Hazzard said.
Developed in consultation with international experts in supply chain logistics, the new distribution centre features storage for up to 30,000 pallets in a temperature-controlled environment. It also features a large cold room and specially designed areas for controlled drugs and dangerous goods.
