Privately -owned, SCM Pharma’s corporate HQ and manufacturing facilities are located in Northumberland in the UK with a commercial office in New Jersey, USA.

Its state-of-the-art, purpose-built 17,000 sq. ft. facility was specifi­cally designed to satisfy the needs of clients that require Investigational Medicinal Products (IMPs) or commercial supplies of niche licensed medicines such as orphan drugs. The firm’s expanding facility will be inspected by the FDA in 2011 and includes:

  • Seven cleanrooms – all Grade C (class 10,000)

For Europe-based clinical trials, it provides rapid tech transfer, manufacturing, testing and release to reduce costs and time to market.

SCM aims to provide its clients with the right quality products within an agreed timeframe and budget. All work is closely monitored for quality performance and the company’s highly trained staff work within stringent quality control systems. It is this quality service, plus its flexible and positive approach, that makes the company stand apart from its competitors.  pic 2
