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.  

"We are happy that PharmaCore chose Albemarle's custom manufacturing business unit, Fine Chemistry Services (FCS), to expand their expertise as a custom synthesis provider for their customers," said Steve LeVan, Albemarle's vice president of FCS.  "I am confident that PharmaCore's valued customers will benefit from our premier service and production capabilities and look forward to partnering with each of them to bring their products to market quickly and effectively."
