Who We Are:
Pharmaceutical Product Development Specialists

UPM Pharmaceuticals is a bit of a rarity in the pharma manufacturing industry. We are an independent, family-owned contract development and pharma manufacturing company with longstanding experience as a Big Pharma supplier and the commercial pedigree of more than 80 products brought to market.


What We Do:
Provide CDMO Pharma Solutions

As a pharmaceutical productions contract development and manufacturing organization, we produce semi-solid and solid dose drug products. We also have a particularly robust track record in late‑stage commercial pharmaceutical manufacturing, including tech transfers and scale-up capabilities.
