Reconstruction: Animedica doubles their capacity
After the major fire in September 2014, the production location of Animedica is being reconstructed in Senden-Bösensell. The construction activities have been running for several days now. "We expect that the building can be recommissioned at the start of 2017", explains Armin Thur, Managing Director of the animal medication manufacturer Animedica, a subsidiary of AGRAVIS Raiffeisen AG.

The investment volume runs to several million Euros. "This investment will double our capacity in comparison to the time period prior to the fire", explains Thur. In the state of the art production plant, 5 million bottles per year will in future be filled with injection products and sterile powders. The cleaning system in Production will be fully automated. The warehouse capacity will increase from 1,000 to 1,800 pallet spaces.
During a fire one year ago, the warehouse was completely destroyed; the production rooms were contaminated by the smoke via the ventilation system, and it has not been possible to use them since then. In the meantime, the rooms themselves have been completely refurbished. After completion of the reconstruction, approximately 100 employees will be working in Senden once more.
