Our infrastructure: designed to maximise your impact

ERP system

The ERP system has been qualified to be used in our manufacturing processes.

An important aspect of GMP production is Batch Number Management. The ERP system supports full traceability. Our personnel is trained and qualified to work with this system.

Another aspect is the computer assisted weighing of raw materials. This avoids unnecessary paper flow in the plant.

We invest 

Due to a strong growth in demand, we doubled our infrastructure in 2004.

Our headquarter plant is specialised in filing and packaging products. The new site 1 has been equipped especially for blending powders and liquids.

Modularly expandable 

Due to the modular construction of the new site, we are equipped to meet the current demand and we can also expand our capacity when needed. It goes without saying that this new infrastructure meets the strictest requirements with respect to quality and safety.

The Laboratory

We have a team of  experienced laboratory technicians. They perform analyses with the state of the art equipment and techniques, but we are also very familiar with traditional wet chemistry. 

The laboratory equipment :

  • 3 HPLC lines
  • Infrared spectrophotometer
  • UV spectrophotometer
  • Weighing up to .00001 g
  • ICH stability chambers: Standards according to the International Conference on Harmonisation of Technical Requirements for Registration of Pharmaceuticals for Human Use  (ICH)
