What can we
create together?

40 years of making Pharmaceuticals

Headquartered in Belgium, OmniChem has been a leader in the Pharmaceutical industry for over 40 years.

The company’s roots go back to the 18th Century, when an British industrialist, Cooppal got permission to set up a black powder manufacturer on what is known today as the Wetteren site.

OmniChem as we know it, started in 1975 with the production of advanced intermediates and API’s - Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients.

In 1988, OmniChem was acquired by Ajinomoto Co. Inc., a global manufacturer of high-quality processed foods, beverages, amino acids, pharmaceuticals and specialty chemicals.

In August 2014 OmniChem launched its Indian venture, Granules-OmniChem.

Today, Ajinomoto OmniChem has close partnerships with an increasing number of pharmaceutical companies all over the world. The company sets itself apart from the rest due its unique set of capabilities and its track record on quality (BE-FAMHP, US-FDA, UK-MHRA, K-FMDS, JP-PMDA) and delivery.

Uniquely trusted by many of our partners, Ajinomoto OmniChem today produces API’s for over 10 Billion tablets. We are the only global manufacturer for over 50 % of the API’s we make.
