DoKaSch Temperature Solutions is expanding its USA operations with the establishment of San Francisco-based DoKaSch Americas with Douglas Wettergren joining as chief executive officer.
Wettergren’s duties will include sales and business development for DoKaSch’s flying aircon warehouse Opticooler RAP and RKN to pharmaceutical forwarding companies.
Opticoolers are climate controlled air cargo containers and are based at designated locations in the US to provide them quickly to clients across North America.
They are equipped with battery powered cooling compressors and heaters as well as a self regulating temperature control.
Wettergren says: “I see many opportunities for Opticoolers in the U.S. and beyond. Our technical features, extraordinary reliability, and availability policy provide us a unique opportunity to offer something special.
“Due to our comprehensive network in the USA and Canada, we can serve clients quickly and dependably. It is truly a fantastic opportunity to be involved in expanding such a high level of quality to the global market.”
DoKaSch Temperature Solutions managing director, Andreas Seitz says: “Douglas knows the needs of the pharmaceutical industry, especially regarding cool-chain transports from the inside out. Douglas will focus on our clients across the United States and Canada.”
Wettergren is an industry veteran who serves on the Bio Supply Management Alliance (BSMA) Steering Committee and is an Advisory Board Member for IQPC in Chicago/Boston.
