The SkyCell Story

Everything started with an idea for a new type of high-end insulation technology, which would be best in class in terms of insulation properties, would have a high carrying strength and would be 100% recyclable. That was more than 7 years ago.

At a dinner, a supply chain manager from one of the biggest Swiss pharmaceutical companies heard about the new insulation material and asked: “Can you build me a container that maintains +2°C to +8°C at more than +60°C on the tarmac in Dubai?”

That was the moment when Nico Ros (CTO) and Richard Ettl (CEO) decided to lead the way to a safe, secure and sustainable pharma supply chain.

A few years later, SkyCell is one the big four providers of pharma containers in the industry and is growing fast. The company has been audited by more than 12 of the biggest 20 pharmaceutical companies and passed all tests with tailwind.

Today, Nico Ros and Richard Ettl, SkyCell’s founders, believe that the long-term goal is to enable the shipment of a single dose of customised medication from the manufacturing site directly to the patient – and always at a controlled temperature.
