Dublin based chemical development company Celtic Catalysts today announced the next phase of its ongoing expansion with the opening of its pilot-scale process facility. This facility, based in the former ICI production site in Redcar in the north-east of England will house the company’s large scale reactors and will enable the company to produce its range of products up to 250L scale. Celtic Catalysts continues to house its R&D division in Dublin where it has access to state-of-the-art laboratories and analytical equipment.
Speaking about its newly opened UK facility, Celtic Catalysts chief executive Brian Kelly said: “This is another significant milestone in the development and expansion of Celtic Catalysts. Our new production capabilities enable us to supply sizeable quantities of our own proprietary products and also means that we can now work with our contract R&D partners from milligram to tens of kilogram scale.”
Celtic Catalysts is a leading supplier of difficult to make chiral and non-chiral products to the Fine Chemical, Pharmaceutical and Biotech industries. Celtic Catalysts has developed a comprehensive portfolio of intellectual property and carved out uniquely strong niches for itself in the areas of asymmetric catalysis, phosphorus chemistry and process development.
