TORRANCE, California—Pelican Products, Inc is re-branding of its global temperature controlled packaging division, Pelican BioThermal LLC, to take effect on October 1, 2014.

The new Pelican BioThermal brand integrates two recently acquired companies, Minnesota Thermal Science (MTS) and Cool Logistics, into an international company with a range of passive temperature controlled packaging options including a rapidly expanding global network of asset management service solutions. The new division claims the largest global sales, distribution and customer service support capability in the life science industry.

“Nowhere else in the industry will you find such depth of knowledge, technology and solutions in temperature controlled packaging,” said Lyndon Faulkner, president and CEO of Pelican Products. “Pelican BioThermal will also offer our customers the benefits of a company that operates on a global scale and can help them quickly and safely deliver life-saving material to where it’s needed, whenever it’s needed.”

Pelican BioThermal’s full suite of products and services offer longevity, reusability and sustainability to provide the safe transport of pharmaceuticals, tissue, diagnostics/clinical trials, vaccines and blood supplies.

MTS senior vice-president Tom Anderson will head up the integrated division and report directly to Lyndon Faulkner.

Pelican Products, Inc. is a portfolio company of Behrman Capital, a private equity investment firm based in New York and San Francisco.
