Outsourcing: your strategic decision

Strategic outsourcing is a growing trend in the pharmaceutical industry. There are many good reasons for entering in a partnership with Labo Smeets.

Powder products don't always have the critical mass to be profitable in your operation. Our focus can be of help for you.

Cost-savings 

You concentrate on your core business; we concentrate on specific activities that seamlessly supplement your efforts. In the case of production peaks, new developments, limited editions… we make it easy for you to extend your capacity without investment risks.

 Flexibility

The market demands thorough and continuous innovation. The time to market is becoming increasingly shorter, the deadlines tighter. Together with us, you are continually on top of things. This maximises your operations and your competitiveness.

State-of-the-art equipment

Technology is evolving rapidly. Keeping up with the latest technologies and equipment for powder manufacturing is not always easy – or justifiable from a business point of view. As specialists in the production and packaging of (para)pharmaceuticals, we make the investments for you.

Strategic partnership

We enter in a partnership with our clients that is supported by four pillars: excellence, confidence, flexibility and transparency. We do not sell proprietary products, we do not market products under our own name. All of this underpins our long-term alliances with our clients.
