RMR® Enclosures Protect Equipment in Leading Pharmaceutical Company’s Distribution Centers
May 16, 2017
AmerisourceBergen is one of the world’s largest distributors of pharmaceuticals to retail pharmacies, specialty physician group purchasing organizations (GPOs) and hospitals. Operating numerous distribution centers across the United States and Canada requires a robust IT infrastructure solution. With such a vast logistics system in place, the company trusted Chatsworth Products’ (CPI) RMR® Industrial Enclosure Systems to protect equipment in its facilities.
Because of the nature of work conducted in the distribution centers, cabinets and critical equipment were subjected to dirt, dust and debris. To combat these elements, CPI’s RMR Modular Enclosures were recommended. RMR Modular Enclosures are industrial enclosures engineered to protect equipment with cutting-edge seal technology and certified NEMA Type 12 and IP 55 ingress protection ratings.
“There’s dust and debris in our warehouses. The cabinets we were using were not adequate for the IT gear we were deploying or for the cable management it required, so we looked at design documentation, and the RMR cabinets seemed like the best fit for our needs,” Joe Hoskins, Director of Data Center Management for AmerisourceBergen, stated.
Also, AmerisourceBergen’s equipment required extra protection due to a special fire suppression system in the distribution facilities. In the event of a fire, sprinklers go off. RMR Enclosures protect against light water splashes, safeguarding the company’s equipment.
“One of the big things about the RMR cabinets that we really liked is that they are for the most part waterproof, which is a big benefit to us,” said Hoskins.
In addition, AmerisourceBergen deployed CPI eConnect® Monitored Power Distribution Units (PDUs), cable management and thermal management accessories.
Now with CPI’s RMR Modular Enclosures and accessories in place, AmerisourceBergen is better prepared to address the dynamic changes in the healthcare industry with reliable delivery and on-time response to enhance customer care.
