Relocation more viable for growing pharmaceutical manufacturer Soho Industri Farmasi
PT Soho Industri Farmasi, a local Indonesian pharmaceutical manufacturer of solid, semi-solid and liquid over-the-counter (OTC) pharmaceuticals.
Wiley was engaged to design an extension to its production facility at Pulogadung in West Java. Assessing the suitability of the site for the extension, staging the works, and refurbishing and rationalising the processes in the existing facility and the new extension were core requirements of the project.
Wiley determined it would not be economically viable to proceed with the proposed facility extension on the existing site.
To fit the site, the facility would have to be multi-storey, which would lead to materials handling and process flow inefficiencies and the need for restricted personnel access around process equipment.
Wiley recommended that the client source an alternative site. The client pursued other alternatives and achieved an effective project solution.
