Rowa Automation Systems offers solutions for automated stock handling in pharmacies and hospitals. The Rowa picking system stores and manages medicines similar to a miniature high-bay storage. In the process, it stores packages according to size in order to ensure an ideal utilisation of space. If a certain medicine is requested, the corresponding product is automatically transported via conveyor belts, slides or lifts to the cash register. The pharmacist can continue to consult the customer in the meantime. Extensions such as a fully automated storage complete the product family. Locally operated pharmacies are the main target group in terms of marketing the products.
Currently there are more than 4,000 Rowa systems installed in over 30 countries. Since August 2011, Rowa has been part of CareFusion, a globally operating medical technology company. CareFusion systems offer comprehensive solutions for automated stock handling in laboratory and hospital pharmacies all over the world. The Kelberg site benefits from this development. Here the work force consists of more than 300 highly qualified and motivated professionals, of whom 80 work in customer service and customer support while another 40 work in research and development.
