Vetter – a strategic partner focused on your success
Vetter is an international specialist in the production of aseptically prefilled syringe systems, cartridges and vials. We are a family-owned, independent company and do not manufacture our own drugs. Our focus is on providing highly skilled support and state-of-the-art manufacturing resources – from the initial phases of clinical development and regulatory approval process through successful product launch, commercial manufacturing, and life cycle management. Vetter has extensive experience with biologics and other complex compounds. More than 80% of Vetter’s active projects are biologics, and Vetter currently manufactures five of the world’s top 10.
At the center of our work is partnership with our clients. Without collaboration, and without a sense that “we’re in this together,” success would be elusive. Drug development is a process that takes years and an enormous amount of capital. A trusting, open relationship and the willingness to solve problems together are necessary to success – for us and for our clients.
Managing Directors: Oliver Albrecht, Thomas Otto, Peter Soelkner
Director Key Account Management Asia/Pacific: Chervee Ho
Manufacturing facilities in the US and Europe:
Europe: Three commercial aseptic filling facilities and state-of-the-art secondary packaging facility
U.S.: Small-batch clinical manufacturing facility in Chicago. Supports preclinical through Phase II products. At Phase III, products are transferred to Vetter’s commercial manufacturing facilities.
Vetter’s facilities work independently of each other and have nearly identical production processes. If contracted, they can serve as backup reserves, providing clients security of supply. Vetter’s Chicago site, an expansion of Vetter Development Service, meets the need for early-stage product support in North America, where approximately two-thirds of global Phase I and II parenteral drug development takes place.
Vetter’s presence in Asia:
In November 2014, Vetter opened an office in Singapore to meet the needs of the rapidly growing Asian healthcare market. The new office will support customer relations and the development of new business.
In October 2015, Vetter opened a new business entity in Tokyo, Japan. The new office underlines the importance of Japan for Vetter’s business activities.

Services and Capabilities
Vetter’s full portfolio of services includes dedicated resources for both clinical development and commercial manufacturing. In addition, we provide expert packaging technologies and solutions tailored to your product’s specific market needs.
Vetter Development Service
At Vetter Development Service, we partner with our clients from preclinical development through Phase III. Because we plan for commercial production from a product’s earliest stages, we develop processes that mirror those at our commercial production facilities. That enables seamless product transfer at Phase III to Vetter Commercial Manufacturing for scale-up and large-scale production. With a growing need for early-stage support in North America, we expanded Vetter Development Service to Chicago, Vetter’s first U.S. facility.
Vetter Commercial Manufacturing
Vetter Commercial Manufacturing provides Phase III clinical manufacturing through global market supply. To strengthen security of supply, we take active steps both downstream and upstream to maintain the integrity of the supply chain, including regular quality reviews of all suppliers and cross-linked IT systems to monitor manufacturing processes.
Vetter Packaging Solutions
Vetter Packaging Solutions helps clients match their product with the appropriate drug-delivery system (primary packaging); secondary packaging, such as cartoning or blister packing; and packaging services, such as pen-system assembly.
