We are purely a contract manufacturer and do not develop brands of our own

We are your partner, not your competitor.

One Stop Shop:
From active ingredient synthesis
to the finished product

We offer complete development
– including scale-up and one-to-one transfer of the manufacturing process –
all the way through to commercial manufacturing.

This is by no means standard for a company of our size.
But we have what it takes: Our employees are extremely well trained,
our analytics department is perfectly equipped and our facilities are versatile to handle both clinical and commercial programs.

Apart from our services, we also offer a portfolio
of around 30 active ingredients for the generics market.

Clients can expect transparency and collaboration at every stage of the process

We strive to meet our customer’s expectations.
