SEQENS – a new name for a global leader in pharmaceutical synthesis and specialty ingredients


31st December 2018

Novacap, a global player in the pharmaceutical synthesis and specialty ingredients, with a broad portfolio of products and services and a wide range of technologies, has announced that it will combine its Contract Development and Manufacturing Organization subsidiaries – PCI Synthesis, PCAS, Uetikon and Proteus – into a new entity to be known as SEQENS.

The name change will be rolled out during Q1 2019 at each of SEQENS’ 24 manufacturing plants and 3 R&D centers in Europe, North America and Asia. At that time, signage and websites will be updated to reflect the new corporate entity.

The move positions SEQENS as an integrated global leader in pharmaceutical synthesis and specialty ingredients, delivering outstanding performance, unrivalled market responsiveness and tailor-made solutions to its customers. By consolidating its service offerings, SEQENS can better serve its customers with global access to its 3,200 employees, including more than 300 scientists, engineers and experts, and ensure that products are successfully transferred into production.

SEQENS. Taking science to next level
SEQENS’ name refers naturally to the company’s core synthesis activities, combined with the sequencing of molecules, competencies and technologies to take science to the next level.

In the pharmaceutical industry, SEQENS supports its customers for the development, scale-up and manufacturing of drug substances from preclinical through to commercial phase and offers a large portfolio of APIs and proprietary products.

SEQENS also develops custom solutions and ingredients for the most demanding industries such as healthcare, electronics, cosmetics, food and homecare.

SEQENS. The Continuum of Progress
“As SEQENS, we can better leverage our strong expertise to develop and produce highly complex molecules with unique skills and the largest continuum of technologies available on the market. I am proud of what we have achieved so far, on behalf of SEQENS’ 3,200 scientists, engineers, and experts working across a range of fields such as QHSE, industrial methods and processes, quality, sales and marketing, finance, innovation, legal and more,” says Pierre Luzeau, SEQENS CEO.

The management teams of PCI Synthesis, PCAS, Uetikon and Proteus will remain in place, and continue to report to Pierre Luzeau, who previously served as CEO of Novacap.
