Sigma officially opens new automated distribution facility

4th April 2018 General

Sigma Pharmaceuticals were pleased to welcome the Rt. Hon Richard Harrington MP and Rt. Hon Steve Brine MP to officially open their new automated warehouse, and offices; HD House.

Having started as a community pharmacy in 1975, the family-owned business has grown into Sigma Pharmaceuticals plc – one of the largest independent pharmaceutical distributors in the country.

With their routes in pharmacy, Sigma has always been committed to providing a reliable, flexible and high-quality service to its customers.  As the business has grown over the last few years, Sigma made the decision to invest in their business infrastructure, and introduce automation into the operation.  The result being HD House, named after Bharat, Manish and Kuku’s father, Mr Hansraj Devraj Shah, who was head of the family, provided inspiration to start Sigma and always supported the family in growing the business.

HD House accommodates not only a modern working environment for the Head Office functions, but also a brand-new material handling system, which empowers their dedicated and productive staff to process more orders in less time with even greater levels of accuracy.

Sigma are planning to hold welcome events later this year to allow customers to see how the investment in HD House will improve the efficiency and service they receive.
