The Challenge

STA’s expertise in process development and manufacturing was employed by our client for an expensive advanced intermediate. With an initial unit cost of > $3k/kg, our client wanted to develop a cost-efficient and scalable advanced intermediate process to improve their overall API’s cost of goods.

The Solution

Our team evaluated the use of cheaper, more readily-accessible raw materials during extensive process research and development studies and led to the development of a cost-efficient and scalable process.

The Outcome

The manufacturing process was successfully transferred and launched in our commercial manufacturing plant and resulted in a higher quality product with a unit cost of < $1.4k/kg (i.e., > 50% price reduction). To date, STA has successfully delivered over 45 MT of this material to our client. Over the past three years, we have invested a total of $40 million in capital investment to expand our commercial manufacturing infrastructure and help our clients meet potential market demands.
