INSIDE INDUSTRY
IMCD Group Opens Its First Pharmaceutical Laboratory
IMCD Group, a leading speciality chemicals distributor, has significantly expanded its laboratory capability with the addition of a new pharmaceutical laboratory in Huerth (near Cologne), Germany. This new space totals over 120 m2 of laboratory, office and conference facilities.

The IMCD Pharmaceutical Technical Centre (PTC) will focus on training and market support throughout Europe. By the end of the year the PTC will be equipped to support activities for solid-dose development, tablet-coating and the development of suspensions and syrups. Dr. Alen Guy, Technical Director IMCD Pharma, says: “This laboratory is a substantial investment in IMCD's capabilities and provision of essential service to its many customers. Strategically located in the heart of Europe, this laboratory allows us to greatly enhance our internal training and technical support for the rapidly expanding number of projects we are involved with.“

Significantly, IMCD has established a true IMCD Technical Centre in Europe alongside the Coatings laboratory, quality control laboratory and sampling centre already located on the same premises. This will allow the Group to maximise scientific resources and create a solid technical interaction across the company.

“Heading into 2014 we will have completed twelve 2-3 day courses for IMCD account-, product- and business unit managers from all over Europe, Africa and Asia,” continues Dr. Guy.“ A number of our principals have visited and even run specialist courses in our facility. The support of our principals has been especially satisfying as they recognise that this commitment to our people brings tremendous value to their products and services.”

The IMCD PTC is the newest laboratory to be added to the Group's rapidly growing technical base. It is the eighteenth laboratory for IMCD, following six laboratories in Coatings, six in Personal Care and five in IMCD's Food & Nutrition Business Groups. This continued commitment to strong technical support and development has been a hallmark of IMCD and is expected to sustain the Group's position as a value adding partner to their customers and suppliers.
