Shepherd's manufacturing facilities are designed to achieve the rapid scale-up of your custom chemical needs. Our team is able to quickly develop a scale-up plan based on the results of collaborative efforts made on the laboratory scale. We believe that our efforts to develop customized and unique products forms the basis of a valuable partnership with our customers. This philosophy coupled with our flexibility in scale allows us to quickly manufacture intermediate size product batches. Our pilot facilities encompass vessels from 20 gallons to 1000 gallons with pilot commercial scale downstream equipment all designed to meet your needs of rapid and successful scale-up.
Following a successful pilot scale assessment of our customers' development products, we perform an assessment to evaluate the best approach for full scale manufacture. Our batch capability and multiple facility options allow us to make commercial scale volumes in a variety of batch sizes and in different parts of the world based on our customer requirements. In many cases, we develop multiple batch scenarios with our customers so that we can develop a database of manufacturing parameters and QC data to support our customer's scale up efforts.
