We know how important these therapies are to patients everywhere, and it’s our mission at CSafe to protect every shipment.” 

“We’re excited to collaborate with CSafe in a sector we are deeply passionate about serving — the CGT market,” said Central Pharma CEO Alwyn Smit, “Leveraging CSafe’s consistent 40 year-history of reliability and performance and the company’s full range of cold chain solutions will only enhance our support for patient protection in the most complex and innovative area in medicine.”
