Albemarle Corporation (ALB) Announces Custom Manufacturing Alliance with Pharmacor Inc. (CT:PBP)


2/16/2010 8:39:12 AM

BATON ROUGE, La., Feb. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Albemarle Corporation , a leading global provider of custom manufacturing services, announced today it will partner with PharmaCore to provide manufacturing capabilities for customers with projects that require high volume capacity.

This alliance allows a seamless technology transfer from PharmaCore to Albemarle, offering PharmaCore customers long term, higher volume capacity for their pharmaceutical projects. Albemarle's custom manufacturing capabilities include a network of manufacturing assets in South Haven, Mich., Tyrone, Pa. and Orangeburg, S.C., providing Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) and advanced pharmaceutical intermediate production in a broad range of scale and chemistries.

"Our customers already benefit from PharmaCore's med-chem services through current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) pilot plant capabilities. This new partnership with Albemarle will complete the process," said Brian Swierenga, PharmaCore's vice president of GMP operations. "We have formed long business relationships with many of our customers, synthesizing first batches for toxicology continuing through lab process development and ultimately providing cGMP material for clinical trials. This new Albemarle partnership offers an opportunity to transfer that learned technology to full-scale manufacturing."
