Sigma Healthcare recently opened a new facility in Bridgewater, set to be a distribution hub for the supply of medicines and pharmacy products in Tasmania. The development, located in the industrial estate, was a shared $15 million investment between EG and Sigma Healthcare. There are 35 employees at the site and there were around 95 jobs created during the construction phase.

“This purpose-built site will allow us to supply over 7 million units of essential medicines and related products to pharmacies across Tasmania every year,” says Sigma CEO Vikesh Ramsunder. A major contributing factor to choosing the Bridgewater site was location. Ensuring access to essential medicines for all residents no matter where they live, the Bridgewater location offered access to Hobart and Launceston, as well as major arterial roads. The new facility contains motion activated LED lighting, highly efficient temperature control systems and a storm¬water collection and recycling system. The distribution centre also offers greater capacity and improved technology and security.
