Sourcing and Procurement

Sourcing & Procurement business together with risk management/mitigation that only a pharmaceutical company can support

Even if a supplier can provide raw materials and intermediates with lower cost, such supplier is not adequate for clinical/commercial drugs as stable supply cannot be achieved if quality of such materials are unacceptable.
We can propose, as a pharmaceutical company based CDMO, appropriate quality/cost effective/timely deliverable (QCD) suppliers by utilizing our worldwide supplier database and sourcing experience.
We can also help with a wide range of negotiations and procurement operations with suppliers around the world. Adhering to our mission of “Guarantee product delivery to our patients” as a pharmaceutical company, we utilize our risk management and know-how cultivated through our history to minimize any adverse impact to our customers. We can also act as an import agent as well as handle necessary work for new compounds to comply with the Chemical Substances Control Law.
