Patheon offers complete API services in Europe and North America. Capabilities that span a vast range of complex chemistries
ensuring you’ll have the solution you need. A flexible process that enables rapid scalability for even the most difficult
to manufacture discoveries. Quality ensured by comprehensive analytical services. A widely varied portfolio of generic
APIs and excipients. An experienced project manager, multidisciplinary team and highly experienced regulatory support.
Early development budgets and timelines are exceedingly tight. This pressures companies to do the bare minimum to get to
clinical trials. It’s a viable early-stage strategy, but one prone to costly delays if later stages are not also kept
in focus. Patheon takes a big-picture approach to small molecule product development that employs exceptional efficiency.
Stay on budget and rapidly reach key development milestones while laying a scientifically sound foundation for late-clinical
and commercial success.
Commercial Product Supply
A fully integrated global network of commercial manufacturing facilities. All with exceptional regulatory track records
and pre-approvals from multiple agencies around the world. Capabilities across a comprehensive array of oral solid,
sterile and softgel finished dosage forms. Scale-up and tech transfer processes that have won multiple international
awards. Capacity at all scales, from small batches of specialized products to international supply of top sellers.
In Patheon, you’ll have a partner with more than 40 years of experience and a reputation for high-quality commercial
product supply, built one successful project at a time. Between 2006 and 2015, we helped clients earn 92 overall
NDA approvals, that’s nearly twice as many as the next ranked CMO. Last year alone we manufactured more than 700
products approved for more than 70 countries. With Patheon, you’ll have access to all the expertise, technologies
and options you’ll need to succeed.

Custom Manufacturing Suites
Portfolio of APIs and Intermediates
High-quality APIs and intermediates made in the same facilities, and to the same stringent standards, as our custom manufacturing
projects. These are common building blocks for pharmaceuticals made with an uncommon level of precision. Companies
that understand the difference between price and value know pharmaceuticals will only be as good as their chemical
Rather than exposing your project to the risks of commoditized materials, source from a reputable partner you know. Whether
you need a kilo for an in-house project or barrel after barrel for a commercial project, with Patheon, you can rely
upon this portfolio of APIs and intermediates to make your products their best, and simplify your supply chain
