Bergen to open Boston plant

Bergen to open Boston plant – Bergen Brunswig Corp

Bergen Brunswig Corp., Orange, Calif., signed a purchase agreement that will allow it to open a 200,000sf distribution center in Mansfield, Mass., a suburb of Boston. The new regional facility is scheduled to ship its first order by June 1 in response to what Bergen describes as “a number of requests from its large managed care customers and potential customers.” The new Mansfield center is located on 15 acres in Cabot Business Park, a master-planned industrial park.

Bergen lays claim to being the leading pharmaceutical distributor to the managed care market, mostly because of its superior systems and service capabilities. The company plans to use the new facility solely for drug wholesaling operations and not for medical-surgical supplies.
