"When we moved to our new production premises in 2017, we wanted to select the best technologies and practices to be prepared for future growth and to ensure high quality, effective production and excellent medication safety. We chose Rowa Technologies because we wanted to work with a provider who could provide us with a complete, bespoke automation solution for our business – from the robot itself, to the product add-ons and after-care service. Their reputation across Europe is second to none – it was an easy choice."
