Our strategy

Our “EVOLVE” strategy aims to further strengthen our position as a leading integrated supplier to the pharmaceutical industry by expanding our existing business, enhancing our product offerings along the value chain and diversifying into new and adjacent business segments.

The trends driving our sustainable business model

Pharmaceutical companies increasingly outsource manufacturing, focusing instead on their fundamental value drivers:

Increased focus on R&D and marketing and distribution

Pharmaceutical companies are shifting their focus from in-house process development and production, opting for a more asset light manufacturing set-up. Instead of investing into captive manufacturing capacities they focus on key value drivers such as R&D, marketing and distribution.

Need for flexible production

Changing growth trajectories and various requirements along the lifecycle of a drug can be met by a flexible outsourced capacity rather than a static captive manufacturing capacity of a pharma company, whilst at the same time benefiting from the increased economies of scale of a CDMO that can better utilize its capacity.

Increased importance of small and medium pharmaceutical players

A large proportion of the pharmaceutical development pipeline originates from small to mid-sized pharmaceutical companies, which are very reserved with respect to investing in in-house process development or manufacturing capacities, relying instead on outsourcing to a large extent.

Increased complexity of the pharmaceutical supply chain

New pharmaceutical entities and medicinal therapies are often facing more complex development and manufacturing challenges. Hence, these products benefit even more from an integrated offering of drug substances and drug products by reducing supply chain complexity as well as “time-to-market”.

Proactive lifecycle management

During the lifecycle of a drug, innovative pharmaceutical companies are faced with changing demand patterns, which require a corresponding adaptation of manufacturing capacities. Large scale, diversified CDMOs can adapt their manufacturing portfolio more flexibly to the needs of their customers.

Our business model
