Vetter’s international success arises from its three interdependent divisions:

Vetter Development Service

At Vetter Development Service, we partner with our clients from preclinical development through Phase III. Because we plan for commercial production from a product’s earliest stages, we develop processes that mirror those at our commercial production facilities. That enables seamless product transfer at Phase III to Vetter Commercial Manufacturing for scale-up and large-scale production. With a growing need for early-stage support in North America, in 2011 we expanded Vetter Development Service to Chicago, Vetter’s first U.S. facility.

Vetter Development Service provides:

  • Formulation support
  • Process development
  • Clinical trial manufacturing
  • Analytical service
  • Regulatory support
