Marken opening temperature-controlled branch in Ireland

March 25, 2020
New Dublin location to offer European clients additional clinical trial storage, distribution options

Marken plans to open a new cold chain refrigeration-equipped facility in Dublin, Ireland. A grand opening for customers is in the works, Marken said.

The new location will position Marken to capitalize on Ireland’s thriving life sciences sector, the company said. Ireland continues to attract global pharmaceutical companies, with 75 already operating there, along with 40 pharma and biopharma plants. The new Marken facility is strategically located near the Dublin airport and will offer temperature-controlled preparation and conditioning of packaging for customer shipments from among Marken’s growing client base in Ireland and throughout Europe.  

Marken also maintained the new location will strengthen its overall global supply chain footprint. The company offers clients end-to-end supply chain logistics solutions throughout its global GDP-certified network. 

“Because of Ireland’s strong ties to the pharmaceutical industry, Marken and our parent company, UPS, continue to invest in service and operational capabilities,” said Ariette Van Strien, Marken’s president. “UPS acquired Nightline Logistics group in 2017 and expanded its domestic and cross-border solutions even more recently. The opening of the new Dublin cold chain branch builds on those investments and allows Marken to better serve our clients in a market experiencing exponential growth.

“We’re proud to have the opportunity to expand our services and speed up response times and ultimately be a better resource for our clients.”
