SK pharmteco’s SmartCat

Catalytic Reactions for Intermediates & APIs

SK pharmteco is an innovative leader in designing, developing, & manufacturing catalysts.

SK pharmteco (SKPT) has long history of successfully and safely manufacturing catalysts that spans over several decadesThe catalysts are developed and optimized to provide the best conversion and highest yield.  SKPT then utilizes the catalyst in high pressure and high temperature trickle beds or packed columns to provide intermediates and API at competitive cost at all scales.  These catalysts and this expertise are an integral part of SmartCat a one-stop shop for gram to multi-tons scale production, under CGMP guidelinesThis platform can be utilized as a standalone service or in conjunction with other SK Platforms.

What is our specialty?

Our technology platforms are designed for robust, scalable, and efficient processes through the combination of engineering, chemical, and analytical expertise. 

The SmartPlatform Portfolio provides the consistent integration of capabilities to support development and manufacture from lab to commercial scale. Our expertise in route development and manufacture at all scales using unique technologies means fewer steps, faster turnaround times, increased efficiency, and lower costs. SKPT offers complete manufacturing solutions under CGMP under stringent regulations and safety protocols. 

Our offerings can support clinical to commercial-scale capabilities, incorporating expertise in route and method development, all available in-house.  

This allows fewer steps, faster turnaround times, increased efficiency, and lower costs. Finally, this is done under CGMP guidelines at facilities worldwide, under the strictest regulations and safety protocols.

Plug & Play

Each technology platform is fully integrated within the SKPT SmartPlatform Portfolio.  As a result, each technology can be transferred and seamlessly integrated across all our facilities.  All data is organized, managed, tracked, and maintained to ensure CGMP compliance and transparency with our customers.   

Productivity & Scalability

SmartCat is available at all scales with capabilities to meet commercial needs in a reliable and scalable manner.  SKPT’s SmartCat Platform provides manufacturing solutions from small to commercial scale under CGMP by using off-the-shelf, as well as product-specific catalysts that can be designed and manufactured in-house tailored to specific needs.  

Time- & Cost-Savings

SK pharmteco’s systematic approach to catalyst screening and optimization provides a time and cost-effective solution.  During the screening process a range of temperatures and pressures can be evaluated to optimize quality and yield.  These conditions are available at all scales to give a seamless transition from screening and development to commercial production.  These conditions can be leveraged to give an improvement in cost and quality compared to conventional chemistry using low pressure/temperature under batch conditions. 

SmartCat catalysts can be designed and optimized for each process and are manufactured in-house to support the project from inception to commercial manufacturing providing a time savings advantage. 


Our technology platforms are closely associated with data analytics to provide our customers with Key Performance Indicators. SKPT is moving towards digitalization to increase customer value and monitor and improve all our processes. 


SmartCat catalysts are produced under strict manufacturing controls to ensure reproducibility and consistency.  Processes developed using the SmartCat platform are easily scaled in our facilities based on years of in-house experience and expertise.  Continuous catalytic processes are continuously monitored using Process Analytical Technologies (PAT) to ensure the highest level of performance. 


SK pharmteco has a rich history in catalyst development and manufacturing.  The catalysts are optimized for use in continuous processing to provide higher selectivity, improved impurity profile, safer operating conditions, and more predictable processes at scale.  This results in more cost-effective manufacturing processes.  SmartCat specialties include an extensive library of metals and support various chemical transformations.  SKPT has world-class capabilities for the evaluation, scale-up, and manufacturing of pharmaceutical intermediates and APIs using catalytic flow technology. 


All SKPT facilities adhere to the motto “Safety First, Quality Always.”  These two essentials are at the heart of our process development and manufacturing capabilities.  Regardless of the chemistry, our experienced team of technical professionals always spends the necessary time to assess the associated hazards with the process to ensure a safe scale-up at all our plants.    

Regulatory Support

Our Quality/Regulatory team is experienced in interacting with regulatory agencies worldwide to support our customers with their filing.  Through process development reports, critical parameter evaluations, or site audits, our chemists, engineers, and regulatory experts are experienced in bringing your product from development to commercialization through successful validation.  Our track record with the regulatory agencies is impressive.  Our success rate in Pre-approval Inspections ensures that validations and product launches occur without any regulatory concerns.  Our history even shows a significant number of inspections being waived due to the high quality of our systems. 

Project Management

Our Project Management Group has end-to-end responsibility for the assessment and execution of your program. The PM team will work closely with you to understand your needs and objectives and develop a plan to initiate and execute project deliverables. Once a project is awarded, a Project Manager will be assigned who will become the key point of contact for the Customer. The PM will be supported by an internal integrated cross-functional team responsible for project delivery. We will work with you to agree on the optimum arrangements for managing all elements of your project and enable the highest level of collaboration and problem-solving across technical groups. Timely, accurate, and transparent communication is vital to the success of our projects, and we maintain the highest levels of integrity in all our activities. Our ultimate goal is to deliver your project on time and right the first time.
