Ajinomoto OmniChem


Headquartered in Belgium, OmniChem has been a leader in the Pharmaceutical industry for over 40 years.

The company’s roots go back to the 18th Century when a British industrialist obtained permission to set up a black powder manufacture on what is known today as the Wetteren site.

Modern OmniChem started in 1975 when production of advanced intermediates and API’s started at the Wetteren site.

In 1988, OmniChem was acquired by Ajinomoto Co. Inc., a global manufacturer of high-quality, processed foods, beverages, amino acids, pharmaceuticals and speciality chemicals.

August 2014 saw the start-up of its Indian venture Granules-OmniChem.

Today OmniChem has close partnerships with an increasing number of pharmaceutical companies worldwide, driven in no small part by its unique set of capabilities and its track record on quality (BE-FAMHP, US-FDA, UK-MHRA, K-FMDS, JP-PMDA) and delivery.

Uniquely trusted by many of our partners OmniChem today produces the API’s for over 10 Billion tablets. We are the only global manufacturer for over 50 % of API’s we make.
