API and Intermediates. Industrial. Real

Since 2019 Archimica is back to the market, stronger than ever, in its Lodi, Italy site.
APIs, GMP manufacture, complex synthesis, the most challenging reactions and reagents in chemistry are our daily life since 75 years. FDA and AIFA have successfully inspected Archimica since years, and continuously work with us as our products launch into US and Europe. Our Custom Development and Manufacturing Services are backed by a strong portfolio of generic standard care active ingredients. We serve more than 200 customers worldwide in more than 50 countries.

Premium client attention is our nature as a successful Italian business. It is enabled by the agility and flexibility of our integrated team, with unparalleled stability and experience in industry.

Our portfolio is focused on products and syntheses which use the most challenging reactions and reagents in chemistry. We not only hold equipment for manufacture of clinical/small scale quantities of a few 10 kilograms through several 10/100 metric tons on industrial scale. Our active portfolio spans this range.

There is more to come – LIFE goes on!

Just One of Many. Hydrazine. Industrial. Real.

Archimica has continuously and safely used hydrazine on industrial scale since many years. Hydrazine is valuable both as reagent for reductions of organic or inorganic compounds, and as versatile building block. Heterocycles, both 5- and 6- membered are versatile targets, as well as hydrazides. Hydrazine has a number of advantages, among them the availability of various grades and forms, as pure liquid, 90% and 50% aqueous solution, sulfate or hydrochloride salt. With its solubility and reactivity it is a proven tool in the hands of chemists.

Due to its toxic and cancerogenic properties these advantages become disadvantages when it comes to safety and handling, especially in industrial scale. Use is highly regulated, hydrazine may be used in cases where not substitutable or in pharmaceutical synthesis. Archimica has been using hydrazine on the 5 metric ton level continuously over the years and maintains all permits, industrial and safety conditions to industrially use any form of hydrazine on the required industrial scale.
