Commercial manufacturing of solid dosage forms

Here at Rottendorf Pharma, we have more than 95 years of experience in the commercial manufacturing of solid dosage forms. In bulk manufacturing, we produce a wide variety of dosage forms for our customers.

High technical know-how in the manufacturing process

Thanks to a high level of technical expertise of our employees, who ensure stable manufacturing processes, and a multi-layered and flexible planning process to respond to diverse market requirements, we are able to plan your capacities optimally and deliver on time.

Our customers do not need to have a high level of expertise in product technologies and technical operations, as we operate according to the Total Technological Mastering (TTM) service concept.

Highest quality is the most important priority for us. Our manufacturing facilities are certified by FDA, EMA, ANVISA and other national authorities. In our bulk manufacturing area, we produce commercial batches up to a size range of 750 kg. Commercial batches of a size between 2 kg and 150 kg are produced in our Development center, which is also FDA approved and GMP compliant.
