About Us

FB Pharmtech is a leading company in custom synthesis and chemical sourcing.

FB Pharmtech provides high quality custom synthesis and chemical sourcing services to companies in the life science and pharmaceutical industries. We are dedicated to providing customer satisfaction by delivering high quality products, with rigorous analysis, supported with clear, open communication and excellent customer service.

Our customer base is as diverse as the products we synthesise and source, and includes drug discovery and development companies, contract research organisations, contract manufacturers, chemical catalogue companies, government associated scientific institutions, universities and life science-based start-ups, from around the world.

FB Pharmtech has a strong track-record of successfully synthesising complex small molecules on the mg-kg scale, including candidates for drug discovery and development, impurity reference standards, metabolites, intermediates and building blocks.

We have strengths in scale-up chemistry and process optimisation, allowing us to smoothly take custom synthesis projects from the bench to manufacture while maintaining high technical specifications. Our team of chemists have successfully delivered challenging projects, including ones where the target has involved multi-step synthetic routes, chiral chemistry, low yielding routes and/or challenging purifications. Our rich experience in custom synthesis allows us to utilise innovative approaches and chemical problem solving to overcome the challenges that are presented when striving to synthesise unique targets.

We are consistently focused on how to best serve the customer and strive to deliver exceptional quality products, at a competitive cost, with timely delivery. To do this, we support our custom synthesis service by sourcing chemicals from our wide network of global chemical manufacturers and suppliers. Through our in-depth knowledge of chemical manufacturers and suppliers, we can help our customers access manufacturers of hard-to-find products and achieve success in their sourcing activities.
