ZETA & SIGMA: Concentrated automation expertise for the pharmaceutical and biotech industry
Comprehensive automation solutions ensure the reliable supply of essential active ingredients and medicines to the market in the pharmaceutical and biotech industry. The ZETA Group has established itself as an expert for customer-specific automation solutions and agile and innovative project management methods in the global market. ZETA's market position is further expanded and its product and service portfolio for customers is strengthened with a stake in the automation specialist SIGMA.
The cooperation between ZETA and SIGMA is based on trusting cooperation resulting from a large number of successfully implemented projects. A new chapter is now being added to this success story: With ZETA's majority stake in SIGMA, their course together is being set in the direction of becoming innovation drivers in the field of automation.
Thanks to this intensified partnership, customers benefit from a future-oriented automation portfolio, a comprehensively expanded service network and short response times. “The message to the market is clear: In the field of customer-specific automation solutions, from individual user control to extensive process control systems, there is nothing better than ZETA and SIGMA," explain the three Managing Directors Gerald Dollberger, Jochen Hasselbach and Martin Spinnler in unison.
GMP conformity in focus
Since 2001, SIGMA has been offering automation solutions that are perfectly adapted to the requirements of its international customer base. Its GMP-compliant project management efficiently implements project plans. “We develop and implement software and hardware solutions from basic planning to qualified handover to our customers. We structure the automation software according to ISA S88, for example, with common process control systems, including recipe and route control, for maximum flexibility, scalability and availability," explains Martin Spinnler proudly.
ZETA as a system integrator
ZETA is active worldwide as an engineering specialist. Thanks to integrated plant construction, end-to-end solutions can be offered and developed. Offerings for the international pharmaceutical and biotech industry are completed through vertical system integration of customer-specific automation concepts. The number of interfaces between the customer and the executing company can be significantly reduced with this integrated solution chain, since the process know-how and the software programming come from a single source. This approach enables the implementation of ultra-fast-track projects, which are essential for the market supply of essential active ingredients. ZETA offers integrative solutions for all software platforms currently on the market. "We have extensive expertise with systems from Emerson, Honeywell, Rockwell and Siemens, but we also offer solutions for any other platform used by our customers," says Gerald Dollberger, underlining the agility of his team.
The combined expertise of ZETA and SIGMA is now available to all customers. The two companies can draw on a strong network of over 220 automation experts. In Germany, the concentrated automation competence can be found at 9 locations in the immediate vicinity of important industrial centers. "Together, we offer a perfect network and are immediately available to our customers with our comprehensive solutions," emphasize the three managing directors in conclusion.
