Excipients & formulation

IMCD has a long history of supporting the pharmaceutical, OTC and nutraceutical industries with the supply of excipients.

Using our unrivalled portfolio, our industry experts offer robust technical support and innovative solutions to our customers. 

We source the best excipients from the world’s leading manufacturers and work together to ensure market, production and quality expectations are met. Our commitment to innovation through formulation is at the heart of what we do.

At our Technical Centers and driven by our regional technical product managers, we offer customers the opportunity to trial excipients and formulations before committing to making investments at their own or a partner’s facility. We also run regular seminars and webinars on topics our customers want or need to explore. 
This gives you an opportunity to learn about formulation advances, while networking with like-minded professionals. These sessions can also be tailored and held at your premises, should you prefer.
