Accupac, Inc., a privately owned, 25-year-old company, provides a wide range of contract manufacturing and packaging services to the pharmaceutical and personal care industry. Accupac's services are integral to its customers' operations and include test batches, experimental batches, validation batches, as well as trade, sample, and commercial batches. Accupac provides services to its customers at peak times of demand and for new product introductions or when rapid turnaround is required to meet demand or government regulations. Accupac has filling and packaging capabilities from 1/8 oz up to gallons and tanker trucks. Accupac fills and packages most every type of tube, bottle, jar, pump, pouch, and now a new 3-D unit of use package for consumer samples and trade packages. Accupac is a non-union company with a stable workforce of 300 employees working three shifts, five days per week.
Outsourcing by healthcare companies is increasing yearly as companies determine that the manufacturing of their products could be done by a qualified contractor while drug companies concentrate on research and development, and marketing and sales. Accupac is well positioned to serve its customers with two facilities totaling 210,000 square feet. Accupac has chemistry and microbiological laboratories on site. They have manufacturing vessels from 50 gallons on up to 5000 gallons and storage tanks up to 14,000 gallons. They provide stability testing as well as the capability of manufacturing Schedule II through Schedule V drugs. A new 300,000 square foot building will be started in 1999 for completion in early 2001.
The history of the relationship with the US Food and Drug Administration has been exceptional. Accupac has maintained a professional working relationship with the local compliance office. This relationship is viewed by both the FDA and Accupac as an asset for the quality and timely manufacture of regulated products. It is notable that Accupac has never been cited by the FDA in the company's 25-year history.
