Solvias – The Story So Far

Solvias’ unparalleled experience and state-of-the-art services are founded on our long history of involvement in the pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals and fine chemicals sectors. This is where our expertise emerged from.

It all began in the former Ciba-Geigy as part of the global central research, later then the central research services. After the merger with Sandoz, we operated as a scientific 'competence center' for Novartis. The turning point came with the management buy-out in 1999, a symbol of the management’s belief in the future of the company.

This development crystallized a stronger focus on our core competences, so that today Solvias can offer its clients unique technology and know-how in the areas of analytical, biopharmaceutical and chemical development, and thereby contribute to their success.

Since October 1, 1999, Solvias AG operates as an independent private company, and is not listed on the stock market. The majority of the voting rights are held by the management team.

Looking ahead

With the move to our new site and headquarters in Kaiseraugst (near Basel) in 2010, we can respond to the exciting challenges ahead and write a new successful chapter in our company’s history.

Efficient and effective project management is key to successful service delivery. Our project managers take responsibility for the management and coordination of customer projects from kick-off to final delivery. We also provide a clear, transparent structure for planning and performing your projects.

Your requirements will be handled by a team of dedicated project managers, typically holding a Ph.D. in natural sciences. They use their in-depth experience in development projects for the pharmaceuticals industry, best practice methodologies, and leadership to coordinate the specialists assigned to your project.

An important added-value in the performance of your project is effective and timely communication using, for example, frequently scheduled telephone conferences, personal discussions on site and regular reports.
