Our company: a long history

Procos S.p.A. is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Japanese company CBC Co. Ltd Group, specializing in the development, scale-up and production of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs), advanced intermediates and related services for the pharmaceutical industry.

The manufacturing site is located in Cameri, Italy. This 110,000 square meter cutting-edge multipurpose plant, which was fully designed under cGMP compliance, has been successfully audited and approved by the main regulatory authorities including AIFA, FDA and PMDA.

We are a locally rooted company yet part of an international network, with commercial offices in key strategic locations.

Our business: we move in a much bigger context

Our core business sectors include custom synthesis and Generic API manufacturing.

Entering the CBC group strengthened our position in the Japanese market. At the same time, we have initiated a process of expansion in a number of key markets, such as the United States, Europe and India, by opening a network of sales offices in order to increase our global footprint.
Global network and teamwork: Procos is in a position to work and grow in the chemical-pharmaceutical industry across the world.

A wider availability of information and the most up-to-date communication technology bring us closer and closer to our customers and partners.
Our cooperation with them is nearby everyday: very often, we explore needs and opportunities together.
This means: flexibility, transparency and trust.

Innovation: we have the power to innovate in a myriad of fields

To ensure our constant growth in an increasingly competitive market, Procos strives to pursue innovation, while keeping our core identity, by constantly investing in our company and in our people.
Since becoming a member of the CBC Group, Procos has consistently and vigorously pursued innovation. We have restructured and expanded our sales network by establishing subsidiaries in key markets, including the U.S.A. and the E.U. At the same time we have worked to improve our management structure to offer a quicker response capability and flexibility, and the ability to answer to market needs from a global perspective. We have also boosted our service platform and greatly enhanced our technical capabilities - achieving the highest GMP and HSE standards.
Over the past few years, we have implemented several investments in both the compliance and growth areas: increased production capacity, new labs and a finishing unit, and a small-scale GMP production unit just to mention a few of the company upgrades.
Moving forward, we are also working to boost our technological platforms, as witnessed by our new state-of-the-art HPAPI Unit for oncology products.

Never willing to settle for past success, we are always looking for new challenges to shape our future

Our Group's slogan is “Dream Together.” It represents the spirit that we adopted from the CBC Group, and at the same time, it is the spirit that colors our day-to-day activities. Because we deeply understand this philosophy as a team and implement it on a daily basis, it has become a conduit of success. By sharing our dreams, we can work to create a prosperous future.
Initiative, motivation, determination and passion are the ingredients to build a solid foundation for sustainable growth.

Our mission for the future has not changed:
We are strongly committed to safeguarding the environment and ensuring compliance with safety and quality standards.
We aim to increase our market shares globally, bringing reciprocal prosperity to our customers and ourselves.

Over the next few years, bigger changes lie ahead of us as well as a more complex environment and challenges which are hard to manage.
Our future will not be easy, and will always be very challenging and exciting at the same time. However, we can count on the most exclusive and important resource: our people.
