Safe Storage Facilities
Regionally located in the United States, our five offices provide convenient access to storage. To safeguard all of our storage sites, ReproTech has installed F5 Tornado Shelters in our Minnesota and Texas facilities, Safe Rooms to withstand wildfires in our Nevada facility, and Storm Rooms to endure Category 5 hurricanes at our Florida facility. These Safe Storage Rooms house our cryostorage tanks and are built to withstand increasingly strong and frequent storms, giving our clients priceless peace of mind.
