Bachem to complete integration of Sochinaz mid-year

Sochinaz will continue to offer the same product line and services

Bachem, a Swiss supplier of peptide active ingredients for the pharmaceutical and biotech industries, will complete the integration of fine chemicals firm Sochinaz, also based in Switzerland, by 30 June.

The Sochinaz plant in Vionnaz will operate as a branch of Bachem, based in Bubendorf, with the same product line and services.

Bachem says combining the organisational units of the two locations will produce synergies in both sales and marketing and research and development. Currently around 100 people work at Vionnaz and no jobs cuts are envisaged.

Bachem Group chief executive Dr Rolf Nyfeler, said: ‘Having now completed the integration of Sochinaz and restructured our US operations last year, Bachem has put in place an efficient global organizational structure providing an excellent position to capture current and future growth opportunities.’
