Founded in 1974 as a distributor of pharmaceutical ingredients, it was in the late 1980's with the advent of research and manufacturing of active pharmaceutical ingredients ("APIs"), that Apotex Pharmachem Inc. ("API") began its impressive growth.
API is a proud member of the Apotex Group of companies, Canada's largest manufacturer and provider of high quality generic pharmaceuticals to the Canadian healthcare system.

We are located in Brantford, Ontario, Canada, approximately 120 kilometres west of Toronto and currently have over 320 employees at the Brantford facility, including 37 with PhDs.

The first major pharmaceutical ingredient developed and manufactured by API was Nadolol. Another early success was the anti-viral product, AZT, in which API today has a market leadership position. To this day, API maintains its commitment to the supply of AZT and other anti-viral compounds to developing nations.
