As one of our key business sectors, Hosokawa Micron have invested significantly in the development of our technology, expertise, and services in the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry.

Hosokawa Micron Ltd boasts unrivalled expertise in powder and particle processing technology and services for the pharmaceuticals industry.

Pharmaceuticals is a key sector for Hosokawa Micron Ltd. We place significant investment into the development of our specialist pharmaceutical knowledge and the pioneering technology, equipment, process systems and technical services we offer to our customers, who include global giants of pharmaceutical manufacturing, science laboratories, as well as healthcare, nutraceutical, medical device, fine chemical and additive manufacturing companies.

As the world population, life expectancy and scientific innovations increase and converge, so too does the need for ever more sophisticated new forms of pharmaceuticals and technology. Hosokawa Micron Ltd is right at the centre of this growth.

Cultivating successful and discreet working relationships with our pharmaceutical industry customers over many decades has afforded us the opportunity to continually develop, engineer and manufacture pioneering processing, containment and aseptic handling equipment – as well as complex process system designs – in accordance with stringent cGMP, GAMP and FDA requirements.

Our proven expertise helps us to deliver tangible competitive advantages to customers and spans a wide range of pharmaceutical applications. Amongst our specialities, we manufacture equipment and systems to process active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) and intermediate raw materials for dry powder inhalers, tablets and pills; dry cell culture media formulations for laboratory research and highly potent active pharmaceutical ingredients (HPAPI) that require very specialist processing and containment equipment, along with vitamins, food supplements and nutraceuticals.

We also boast in-house scientific and R&D expertise, helping our customers with formulations, new product development and product testing in our private laboratory and contract manufacturing facilities.
