CPL is a leading contract developer and manufacturer (CDMO)
of non-sterile liquid and semi-solid pharmaceutical products
including creams, ointments, gels, lotions, and non-sterile
solutions, suspensions, and nasal sprays. With a strong record of
regulatory compliance, exceptional customer service and product
expertise, CPL is the trusted choice for your pharmaceutical
outsourcing projects. By offering turn-key services—from
development to commercial production—CPL creates strategic
relationships with our customers that result in long-term success.
We have been in business for more than 25 years and have grown
to become a trusted partner to our customers.
CPL has two facilities registered with U.S. FDA and Health
Canada— 140,000 square-foot development and manufacturing
facility and a 15,000 square-foot analytical/QC testing lab.
CPL opened its new analytical lab in 2015, very close to our
manufacturing site. CPL’s facilities have self-identified as generic
sites under the US GDUFA and are in good standing. CPL is also
well underway with preparation for product serilization in 2017.
CPL serves large, mid-size, and specialty branded and generic
pharmaceutical customers in North America, Europe, India,
and Asia Pacific. The majority of the products we produce are
destined for the North American market, but we also easily
support products for Europe because of the mutual recognition
agreement between Canada and the European Union.
From product development to commercial manufacturing all
under one roof.
