It is a story that started a long time ago, around the mid-sixties, when the micronization of active ingredients in pharmaceuticals was more or less unheard of.
In those days, fluid jet micronization was being used, in practice, more often in other sectors, for example in mineral, herbicide and antiparasitic products.
By following this principle and adapting it over the course of time to the increasing demands of the chemical and pharmaceutical industry, micronization started to take its first steps.
At first, the orders came from small and
medium-sized companies that found it difficult to set up key departments soley for their micronization requirements, but then, in time, the first “blue chips” joined in.
With the consolidation of Microchem in 1978, and also at the Italian level, micronisation became fundamental. At that time Italy was the number one world market for the production of APIs and even today, it remains in third place, headed only by India and China.
Instilled in the company is the DNA of complementary skills held by its founder engineer, Alberto Martinoli: the art of designing and specifying micronization
equipment and machinery and, on the other hand, the art of simply raising service levels to an absolute maximum.
It is quality and service that are the focal points at Microchem: quality assurance, quality controls and careful laboratory analysis constitute the three pillars on which Microchem bases all of its micronization activities.
By service we mean the capacity to adapt the micronization specifications to the needs of the client, the constant presence of our staff and the flexible and dynamic approach that typifies the company culture at Microchem.
