A message for investors
CEO and Founding Team Member
A message for investors from the CEO.
This is an exciting time for us as our successes lead us to be able to plan aggressively for the future. We are pleased to share with you news of our recent and future growth in the pharmaceutical and fine chemical segments. We welcome financial investors to participate along with us in that growth. Below you will find an overview of news about Kingchem. As well, I also invite you to further explore our company by viewing our website’s page entitled ‘Beyond the Chemistry.’ (While there, please also note the sidebar links for even further information.)
News about Kingchem:
Kingchem’s ambitious expansions to its facilities are proceeding apace, as are plans to break ground in early to mid-2018 for an entirely new cGMP facility in Dalian, China. Our existing 150,000 m² manufacturing facility (Liaoning, China) has already approximately doubled its manufacturing capacity in the last five years, while also completing new and now fully-operational facilities as refrigeration and transformer stations, and new biological waste-water treatment capacity. New incineration facilities, currently under construction, are coming on line soon.
The increased capacity solidifies us as a leader in the manufacturing of fluoro-organic compounds as derived from our HF, KF and SF4 technology platform. It also allows increased capacity for fluorination reagents such as Pyridine HF, Triethylamine HF and Urea HF, and for the company to become a major producer of pentafluorophenol.
Further, the brand new 100,000+ m2 cGMP plant in Dalian starts out providing production and preparation workshops, integrated storage locations, R&D, QA, and administrative space, as well as room for future expansion.
We have also expanded our Dalian R&D facility to 2600 m2. Kingchem’s 70 research chemists and engineers excel at synthesizing advanced intermediates and developing commercial processes. We now feature 99 research hoods, 25 walk-in hoods, an SF4 chemistry lab and 500L SF4 Vessel facility, and Kilo lab facilities include 50 L and 20 L reactors, 20, 50 & 100 liter reactors, vacuum filtration, thin-film evaporator, fractional distillation equipment, and Buchi rotary evaporator. This allows scale up of lab process to produce advanced intermediates in kilogram scale. The facility’s analytical group uses advanced instruments including LC-MS, GC-MS, HPLC, GC, DSC, and UV for product identification, impurity identification, in-process control, and product testing and release. As well, advanced instruments such as EasyMax for process optimization (Calorimetric modular for thermal evaluations like RC1)and RSD (Thermal Hazard Technology) for process safety tests are being introduced.
Having a commercial & logistics facility in New Jersey (USA) has also been key to Kingchem’s success. This positioning of Western management and Eastern operational costs creates both value and supply-chain reliability for our global customers, no matter whether those needs are in the kilogram or hundreds of tons range.
