(Wednesday, April 20, 2016) Pfizer CentreOne, Pfizer’s combined contract manufacturing organization, officially launches today. The multi-specialty CMO focuses on API synthesis and sterile injectables fill-finish. The company was born of the union of Pfizer CentreSource, a global leader in specialty APIs, and Hospira One 2 One, one of the world’s premier sterile-injectables CMOs. Pfizer acquired Hospira in September 2015.
“As a combined organization, we’ve brought together the best of our manufacturing capabilities to provide a wider array of services and technologies to our biopharmaceutical partners,” said Peter Stevenson, Vice President and General Manager of Pfizer CentreOne. “Although Pfizer CentreOne is a new name, we’ve been providing contract manufacturing services for more than 40 years and are committed to further growing our business.” That commitment is reflected by Pfizer’s pledge to reserve capacity for Pfizer CentreOne partner drugs across its dedicated facilities. Mr. Stevenson continued, “If you’re our biopharma partner, we’re dedicated to you for the long haul.”
Pfizer CentreOne is aligned into two primary areas of expertise: API and drug product. Specific focuses are:
- Small-molecule steroid and hormone intermediates and APIs
- Custom small-molecule API synthesis, and
- Sterile injectables fill-finish
Structural relationship to Pfizer
Pfizer CentreOne is a self-contained CMO embedded within Pfizer, with its own dedicated team that reports through Pfizer’s commercial organization.
Call to action
“The expertise you need. The attention you deserve.”
These eight words reflect how Pfizer CentreOne is positioned to provide its biopharmaceutical partners two central benefits: 1) the quality, technology and strength of Pfizer, which has been manufacturing and commercializing drugs for more than 100 years; and 2) the dedicated focus of the Pfizer CentreOne team of experts, who carefully guide their partners’ molecules throughout the manufacturing process.
