Rowa Automatisierungssysteme GmbH: Rowa Automation Systems. Automated storage for efficient pharmacies.

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.
