MPB™ - Mobile Pharmaceutical Building

The MPB™ (Mobile Pharmaceutical Building) evolved from a project tackled by CustomVault in response to storage needs on military bases. CustomVault’s MAB™ (Mobile Armory Building) is a mobile storage option now utilized nationwide for weapons and other sensitive materials requiring a high level of security, and embraced by the US government.

Upon reflection, we at CustomVault realized that this product could be useful to the pharmaceutical industry in that it would provide back-up storage for disaster recovery.

The MPB™ In Greater Detail

The standard MPB™ houses a DEA-approved vault and access vestibule contained within a weather-proof exterior and equipped with connections for HVAC, lighting, electrical and alarm systems. A Class 5 vault door provides access.

Ultimately, the unit’s self-containment, ease of relocation, weather resistance and compliance with all DEA storage requirements make it ideal for the pharmaceutical industry.
