Gollmann automation

A leading player in the automation industry, Gollmann’s strengths lie in its precision work and wide-ranging expertise in engineering and technology. The company’s operations focus on the economic automation of storage and dispensation of small products with high complexity, quantity and variety.

One of Gollmann’s latest products, the revolutionary GO.compact, is a compact and flexible automated dispensing system for pharmacies. Thanks to its patented automated roll-fronted compactor system, GO.compact can accommodate more packs per metre of body length than ever before. Currently, the GO.compact system is seeing in excess of 200 installations per year, in 15 different countries across three continents.

The GO.compact is designed to fit each individual customer’s pharmacy, so Gollmann custom builds the GO.compact to available height, width and length specifications. Gollmann aims to optimise profitability by keeping the cost of conversion low, and return on investment quick.
