We are dedicated to become the strategic partner in drug delivery development by providing pharmaceutical companies with novel and efficient formulation and drug-delivery solutions in their development of more effective medicine

Feedback from some of our clients

'I have worked with Formumax on several occasions. It has always been a great experience working with them. They were very responsive to my company’s needs, and met our specifications with custom manufacturing runs. When our project required particular specifications such as lower endotoxin level and a specific fill volume, Formumax was able to accommodate our requests. Their deliveries were always on time and on budget. Their products were of high quality and met all pre-determined specifications. Their staff always responded to my enquiries in a timely manner. I am happy to recommend Formumax to any company that has special demanding project needs.'
