Albemarle FCS has been synonymous with the delivery of high-value APIs and other drug substance materials for over 40 years. Two significant factors have played a major part in this long-term, consistent presence in the pharmaceutical ingredients market – the consistent delivery of our two domestic U.S. facilities, and an unusually long average tenure among our scientific and operational personnel.
Our leadership team and many of the senior members of staff that you will encounter at South Haven, Michigan and Tyrone, Pennsylvania have been with Albemarle Corporation for twenty, thirty or even forty years. Not only have they spent a career with our company building a wealth of experience that is delivered directly to your project, but it means that if you have worked with Albemarle FCS in the past, some of that same team are likely to bring continuity of knowledge to a project today.
Program management is an integral driver in Albemarle’s ability to deliver custom APIs on time and to the highest quality. Our program managers lead and coordinate all aspects of custom projects, ensuring that you are integrated into our team, communication is responsive and transparent, and all deliverables are clearly understood by everyone and executed on time.
Our long tenures do not only extend to senior personnel. At both South Haven and Tyrone, there are average tenures across the workforce of more than a decade. So the team working on your project – from Ph.D.s, scientists and engineers to project managers, lab personnel and operators – has a significant stretch of time working together.
Albemarle also continually adds new talent to supplement this experience, having grown our team in South Haven by more than 20% in 2018. This new generation brings fresh ideas and perspective.
The benefit that experience brings to your project is intangible but undeniable. From a risk mitigation and problem-solving perspective, Albemarle’s long tenures help to progress your project faster, define the right path forward successfully, avoid setbacks in process and time, and deliver competitive advantage.
