Fast Track Heat Treatment System

Our client, an award-winning biopharmaceutical contract services company, required a custom heat treatment system delivered within 16 weeks. BFC worked tirelessly to provide an innovative, high-quality solution within a very tight deadline. Our inherent team-based approach meant that we were able to collaborate with our client and work towards a common goal. Despite having very little buffer in the project schedule, we were able to deliver the system in time for the scheduled shutdown.
