Scaling up Chemical Manufacturing capabilities

We are more than Chemical Manufacturers.

Our approach is to work closely with you, understanding your challenges and objectives, to deliver solutions that not only meet but exceed expectations. When you work with us you gain a chemical manufacturing partner that is deeply invested in your success, offering expertise, flexibility, and support every step of the way.

As a wholly-owned subsidiary of Japan’s Central Glass Group, we offer our customers the benefits of our group’s collective facilities and resources. These include custom synthesis capabilities in the UK, the US and Japan.

At our 3,000 sq. ft. UK space, we specialise in aromatic fluorochemistry, heterocyclic synthesis and organic intermediates and building blocks, while in Germany we can offer development and upscaling from grams to tons, as well as custom compound synthesis for pre-clinical trial studies, Phase I – III trials and launch, and cGMP production of commercial APIs and Intermediates. In the US, our 27,000 sq. ft. facility specialises in gases, fluorinated gases and aliphatic fluorochemistry, and as such, are extremely proficient in distillations. Facilities in Japan allow us to provide niche fluorination technology from research through to commercial scale.

We focus on scaling tailored processes for your organisation from day one. Our pilot plant is designed for versatility, equipped with the latest technology to handle a variety of chemical reactions and processes. We can accommodate batch sizes that meet your project demands, whether it’s grams or tonnes, while scaling quality assurance and safety protocols accordingly.

Quality Control in Chemical Manufacturing

We offer exceptional standards of in-house quality control to ensure the safety and integrity of all our products. Our in-house team of analytical chemists have over 60 years of combined experience.

Apollo Scientific’s quality control labs are equipped with advanced analytical instrumentation, enabling us to conduct comprehensive testing of raw materials, intermediates, and final products. With techniques such as HPLC, GC-MS, NMR, and IR spectroscopy, we validate product purity, stability, and compliance with all specifications under the prestigious ISO 9001:2015 framework, ensuring a systematic approach to quality management. This certification reflects our adherence to international standards in chemical manufacturing processes.

We continuously monitor our processes from start to finish, preventing any variability and ensuring consistent quality. All our products comply with REACH, GMP, and other relevant regulations. Our compliance helps us support you in highly regulated markets, like pharmaceuticals and agrochemicals.

Our analytic suite features a diverse array of analytical equipment, including HPLC, GC, FTIR, automatic titrators and automatic mp/bp apparatus.
