Teva Czech Industries

Teva Czech Industries Ltd. (www., formerly IVAX) is a major pharmaceutical manufacturer with a history dating back to 1883. The company is located in the northeast of the Czech Republic in Opava, Komarov, and has more than 1,350 employees. Its broad portfolio includes generic remedies such as antiasthmatics, cytostatics, immunosuppressants, cholesterollowering agents, and antihypertensives; over-the-counter drugs; active pharmaceutical ingredients; and herbal extracts. The products meet recognized quality standards. Almost 90% of production is exported to many countries around the world, with a focus on the United States, Canada, and Eastern Europe.

An MES downtime would be a real disaster, because it would impact our whole cosmos of production, logistics, deliveries, and associated processes. Our manufacturing facilities run almost around the clock. This makes it hard, if not impossible, to catch up for lost time and output. Thus, the IT organization has to ensure business continuity and implement solutions that enable 24/7 uptime. And this is why we rely on NetApp for our data infrastructure.
