Project Requirements

Because of complex infrastructural conditions it was necessary to complete all project phases without interfering with the existing workflow. Since Takeda was aware of these compounding conditions, the company looked for a partner capable of handling short-term changes and challenges in an exceptionally professional and open way.

“The commitment and dedication shown by KLATT and their employees, especially by the project managers, was truly exceptional and professional at all times. All individual project phases were completed exactly as planned. Challenges were addressed in an open manner and dealt with immediately. Our decision to go with KLATT in handling this sensitive project was right and we would do it again. As far as we are concerned, the projected was completed in an absolutely fantastic way.” (Werner Schmidt, head of technics, pharmaceutical production and logistics, Takeda)
