Colorcon has acquired excipient business NP Pharm, adding sugar spheres to its portfolio and production capacity that will become “an integral part” of its manufacturing network.

NP Pharm, a division of Ethypharm, produces Suglets sugar spheres, for use in capsule and tablet formulation, which Colorcon believes will complement its SureSpheres product line. Both products are sugar spheres with applications in multiparticulate formulations.

Following the acquisition Colorcon will have access to NP Pharm’s sugar sphere production site in Bazainville, France. The two sugar sphere production sites will offer “critical business continuity planning​” to customers, according to Colorcon.
