With industries increasingly focusing on excelling in core activities, opportunities abound for specialized companies to play a role in the execution of non-core tasks. The pharmaceutical industry is no exception to this general trend of outsourcing, opening up opportunities for specialty-focused companies like Brand-Nu Laboratories and BNL Sciences to deliver their best services while enabling pharmaceutical customers to dedicate themselves to final drug making.Brand-Nu and BNL Sciences have delivered services and product solutions that have successfully enhanced the performance of pharmaceutical companies for decades, as acknowledged by the long lasting partnerships with their customers. They were acquired by Caldic at the end of 2020 as a strategic step in expanding our existing (bio)pharma activities.
Evolving with industry standardsOver the years the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the EU equivalent EDQM have substantially raised the standards for higher quality levels of raw materials and manufacturing, stretching this demand across the entire supply chain; a development that has further reinforced the need for companies specializing in offering products and levels of services beyond just a chemical. “That’s where our strength lies,” explains John Gorman, founder of Brand-Nu, “in supplying chemicals and biologicals for large and small-molecule pharmaceutical production.
“Our quality standards have developed in parallel with the standards of the pharmaceutical industry while we invested significantly in our facilities and personnel. Whether it’s temperature control, safety measures, standard operationing procedures or corporate governance guideline, we have everything in place to meet GMP and ISO standards, but more importantly customer requirements”, underlines John.
Out-of-the-box thinkingBrand-Nu is a strategic partner for customers. “Customers also look to us for suggestions to improve their performance”, explains Toni Patton, responsible for business development and sales at Brand-Nu. “They appreciate our out-of-the-box thinking. Think of best practices for safe handling of raw materials, ergonomic improvements or frankly anything that can make things better, safer or faster for them. We’re keen to find solutions for the challenges our customers bring to us. This presents us every day with a new opportunity to shine.”
While regulatory and customer demands will continue to shape the changes in the industry, as part of Caldic’s global network Brand-Nu and BNL Sciences are well positioned to deliver on the evolving requirements in the (bio)pharma industry.
