And it happened – on December 21, the European Commission approved the conditional approval of the COVID-19 vaccine developed by Pfizer and BioNTech. The decision was based on the opinion of the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use at the European Medicines Agency.
We’ve been all waiting impatiently for this decision – it would probably not be an exaggeration to say that December 21 is one of the most important days of 2020. It gives great hope to all Europeans for a slow, for now, but still more and more real, return to the life we know before the pandemic. We all know, of course, that we will still have to wait for it, but at last, there is a real chance.
Thanks to this decision, the National Vaccination Program is launched. Our company, as one of the largest manufacturers of pharmaceutical refrigerators and ultra-low freezers, is also actively involved in this program. One of the requirements for vaccination points under this program is to have a refrigerator for vaccines with temperature monitoring, hence the huge demand for our devices, which we have observed in recent days.
We would like to assure you that we will make every effort to complete all orders received by us on time. The Christmas and New Year period is ahead of us and everyone is already thinking about relaxing and spending time with the family. However, we are fully aware of the responsibility that rests on us and the hope you place in us, so we will use 100% of all working days left this year.
We also assure you that the increased production of refrigerators, so needed today, will not disturb the production of ultra-low freezers, which also many of our customers are waiting for.
We are very proud of the fact that the POL-EKO-APARATURA equipment, a brand recognized around the world, equipped with the most modern controllers with color, touchscreen displays, will ensure the maintenance of the cold chain and the safety of vaccinations for the citizens of our country.
Our offer includes, among others various types of cooling devices – pharmaceutical and laboratory refrigerators (0 … + 15°C), laboratory freezers (-40 … 0°C) and ultra-low freezers (-85°C … – 50°C). We also have data loggers that allow us to monitor the operation of refrigerators and freezers. All these devices turn out to be necessary equipment for centers which fight against COVID-19 – research laboratories, wholesalers, entities responsible for logistics, as well as hospitals and vaccination centres. We are delighted to be part of this grand pandemic fight project.
All our devices are manufactured in accordance with applicable standards, our company is also ISO 9001 certified. We have an accredited measurement laboratory which calibrate refrigerators, freezers, data loggers (and many other devices) in various temperature ranges. This ensures very high quality and reliability of our products.
We would like to take this opportunity to wish you a healthy and peaceful Christmas! May this time, despite many worries and concerns, give us all strength and hope for the coming 2021!
