MANAGEMENT & METRICS

Minafin’s success is rooted in developing across the world teams of highly skilled employees who have a passion for fine chemistry and its extraordinary fields of application.

Created in 2004, Minafin became an industrial company in 2005 through the takeover of SEAC’s assets, a French custom manufacturing operation (CMO) specialized in chemistry services for drugs under clinical testing. Minafin has succeeded not only in covering the full range of chemical needs of the pharmaceutical industry, but also in diversifying its activities to develop a chemical offer for other markets with cutting-edge chemical know-how.

Our ambition is to build year after year a key-player of fine chemistry. Minafin, as a private company can rely on solid partnerships with its financial stakeholders and shareholders committed for the future of the group.
