DHL/Big Pharma

East Manchester, Pennsylvania


ARCO completed a pharma-grade distribution center in Manchester, PA for repeat client DHL.

The 1,000,350 SF multi-tenant distribution center is utilized by several of the top 10 largest pharmaceutical companies in the world. Due to the nature of the products, the project scope had to meet pharma-grade standards for high hazard storage. The facility includes office space for each tenant and multiple temperature-controlled zones to service a freezer, cooler and cold dock. Details include 60 dock positions, a battery charging station with 50+ batteries and a 700 SF exterior guard house.

The ARCO team delivered the project within an accelerated schedule of 11 months from start to completion, despite weather-related challenges and site constraints from the township.

“ARCO puts trust and ownership in the hands of their employees to do what’s best for the projects and clients. Their generosity for rewarding hard work is unmatched!”
