GalChimia receives an Innovative SME distinction

The Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation has granted GalChimia the Seal of Innovative SME. This distinction recognizes the efforts of companies to develop innovative policies and projects, understanding this investment as a fundamental tool to improve their competitiveness and also respond to the challenges of today’s society.  The Galician company opened in 2018 an R&D&I center at the Barcelona Science Park to accelerate its growth and internationalization strategy. 

Innovation has been an important element in GalChimia since its inception, being one of the pillars around which the company was established in 2001. Our lines of business are directly linked to innovation, being R&D service providers to industries as competitive as the pharmaceutical and agrochemical. Our key expertise, organic synthesis, is a field in constant evolution, and that is why we invest in training and equipment as a means toward technological leadership.

This new recognition is a nice addition to the Crédit d’Impôt Recherche (CIR) certificate granted by the French government through its Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation. The CIR accreditation recognizes companies with high capacity to carry out ambitious R&D projects. GalChimia obtained its first certification in 2014, which we have been successfully renewing every three years thanks to our commitment and investment in R&D&i.

GalChimia is a contract research organization (CRO) specialized in organic synthesis. The company offers high-added-value R&D services in discovery, process, and analytical chemistry for the pharmaceutical, agrochemical and biotechnological industries. These lines of business are further complemented by their service of custom synthesis and the extensive collection of reference substances available in their chemical catalog.
