Our History

Pharmatek was founded on the desire to deliver client-centric service and data-driven drug development. This commitment to quality service and science has fueled our growth and earned us a solid industry reputation. We’re proud of where we’ve come from and remain committed to our legacy of client-centric service.


From a 2,500 sq. ft. space, Pharmatek was established in 1999 providing analytical and formulation development to the local pharmaceutical industry. Pharmatek quickly became known as a trusted and competent contract development company.

Demand for services quickly grew and Pharmatek moved to a new 11,000 sq. ft. facility off Oberlin Road in San Diego. The new facility included an analytical and formulation lab and one GMP manufacturing suite. Over the next three years, the company would see demand for its services grow from formulation development to GMP manufacturing.


By 2006, Pharmatek moved to its present location – a 68,000 sq. ft. facility off Carroll Road in San Diego. Utilizing 34,000 sq. ft. of the building, the facility included four manufacturing suites and a larger analytical and formulation lab.


In 2008, the Company undertook a 16,000 sq. ft. expansion which included an analytical and formulation lab and two cGMP manufacturing suites for the handling of highly-potent compounds.


Pharmatek’s most recent 8,000 sq. ft. expansion includes three additional suites with one dedicated to packaging and labeling of bottles and blisters.
