Multistep Chemistry

Our experience and know-how in process development up to industrial-scale chemical production is part of this activity.

Today, a broad range of projects involving various and specific types of chemistry may be conducted upon request and according to your specifications and time lines.

Our facilities are located in Sisteron (France), Aramon (France), Mourenx (France), Vertolaye (France), Frankfurt (Germany), Ujpest (Hungary), Ankleshwar (India), Garessio (Italy), and Haverhill (United Kigdom).
