About us

We are experts in taking your compound from clinical and product development to product launch and beyond.

At Custom Pharma Services, we are a full-service contract development and manufacturing organisation (CDMO) for clinical and commercial medicinal products.

We take great pride in the quality of support we offer our clients – at whatever stage of their journey they need us. We can help them with every aspect: from pre-formulation development, though all of the clinical phases, to product launch and beyond.

Our experienced development team includes chemists, pharmaceutical scientists, process engineers, quality assurance experts and project managers. Together, we build tailored, innovative solutions to address our clients’ specific challenges, particularly around Oral Solid Dose (OSD) formulation: our reputation is built on our ability to identify ground-breaking ideas to support the development of even the most complex pharmaceutical products.

Founded in Brighton on the UK’s south coast in 1979, we are approved by the MHRA. Our broad spectrum of expertise across all OSD forms includes bio-enhancement of poorly soluble compounds as well as the ability to handle highly potent drugs and controlled drugs.

Our focus is ‘molecule first’ and our aim is to work collaboratively with every client: a truly partnership approach. When you ask who can offer you the experienced and skilled professional input you need in clinical and commercial pharmaceutical development and manufacturing, the answer is Custom Can!
