Minafin : a Fine Chem Group

Global fine chemical manufacturer:
Custom manufacturing Building blocks Process development Scaffold development Active ingredients

5 R&D sites 5 industrial sites

2 in France and 1 in Germany, all FDA inspected 2 in the USA

6 brands: Minakem Custom Recurring & Generics for commercial drugs, Minakem Custom Development for drugs under clinical testing, Minasolve for cosmetic ingredients, Pennakem for green chemistry, Minathiol for the thio-chemistry and Pressure Chemical for high pressure chemistry

2012 net sales: M 109, 618 employees at December 31st, 2012


Focus on the life science industries

Sales breakdown per customer category:

Minafin has successfully developed a strong pharma business and diversification niches since the days it was dedicated to the chemistry for APIs under clinical testing

Focus on customer specificities & technologies

Minafins business units are organized under two separate divisions:

"End-Markets " dedicated to peculiar segment of customers, regardless of the needed chemistry
"Niche Technologies " dedicated to specific know-how and chemical trees, regardless of the end-market customer
The End-Market targets are:
Cosmetic ingredients (Minasolve) Commercial pharmaceuticals (Minakem Custom Recurring & Generics) Pharmaceuticals under clinical development (Minakem Custom Development)

The Niche technologies targets are:

Sulfur chemistry (Minathiol) Green/Sustainable chemistry (Pennakem) High pressure and tailor-made polymer chemistry (Pressure Chemical)

Our BUs organization

Each business unit is managed by a leader assisted by a dedicated team for sales, marketing and R&D The management must ensure optimal use of the factories under its jurisdiction For the Pharma chemistry, the organization recognizes the specific needs of the commercial APIs versus of those under clinical development Minasolve uses either the Group factories or third party manufacturers in its customers best interests
