The company-owned facility at the Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD) opened in late December and is now trafficking the company’s CSafe RKN active system containers – its compressor-driven refrigeration unit with temperature management of 4°C to 25°C.
The facility also provides support for the company’s passive system solutions, providing delivery, maintenance, calibration, and technical support to its complete CSafe product range.
CSafe has hired multiple employees to support the new facility and plans to add more in the first quarter of 2018, according to the company.
Rick Rackley, the company’s director of quality, technical support and service partners said in a press release: “The new ORD service facility will allow CSafe to enhance our support to our growing number of life-science partners and customers in the area who transport vital temperature-sensitive shipments of life-enhancing products from this region.”
In November 2017, the company received FDA approval for its new CSafe RAP, a temperature controlled container (TCC) that uses heating and compressor-driven cooling technologies in conjunction with CSafe’s ThermoCor VIP insulation.
