Each month CED spotlights strategic partners that help to propel Triangle entrepreneurial companies onto the national stage as successful businesses. One of our February Strategic Partner Spotlights is Pfizer CentreOne.
About Pfizer CentreOne
Pfizer CentreOne™ is a global contract manufacturing and development organization (CDMO) embedded within Pfizer. Our mission is to guide our biopharmaceutical partners safely through the drug development and manufacturing journey. We focus on custom API synthesis, sterile injectable fill-finish and highly potent oral solid dose; and we are a leading supplier of steroid and hormone APIs and intermediates.
Why does Pfizer CentreOne support CED as a Strategic Partner?
North Carolina is one of the premier life-sciences centers in the country. CED provides us with a forum to connect with innovators who are looking for a seasoned partner like Pfizer CentreOne to help them take the next steps forward with their compounds. Moreover, North Carolina is a “home” to us. Our Rocky Mount facility employs more than 2,000 people from the local area.
How does Pfizer CentreOne help North Carolina entrepreneurs?
Pfizer CentreOne specializes in working with small to mid-sized biopharmaceutical companies like those in North Carolina. As an organization and as individuals, we are acutely aware of the stakes if a compound succeeds or fails. Our job is to safeguard our partner’s molecule throughout its development, scale-up and commercialization. To do that, we provide each partner with a dedicated Pfizer CentreOne team, a small group of experts who advocate for them across the broader Pfizer organization. The core team not only deeply understands our partner’s compound and business goals, they can tap into a world of Pfizer resources on their behalf, from manufacturing science and technology experts to specialized labs. Our colleagues have worked on almost every problem imaginable, given the number and variety of complex compounds they’ve tackled for Pfizer and for our partners.
