Guiding the development of molecules from clinical trials to commercialization, advancing the aseptic manufacturing of branded and generic inhalation and ophthalmic medications, and compounding unit dose syringes have one thing in common – no margin for error.
Ritedose rigorously controls its supply chain, systems, processes and outcomes to produce pharmaceutical products that provide maximum risk mitigation and the safest delivery system possible. Our work is done in deference not only to patients, but to the people who care for them. Our passion for this endeavor is 8 billion doses strong.
Founded in 1995 in Columbia, S.C., The Ritedose Corporation is an industry leader in pharmaceutical development, aseptic cGMP manufacturing and 503B outsourcing solutions, and has mastered blow-fill-seal (BFS) technology to ensure sterile, efficient, consistent and safe unit dose delivery. Ritedose customers range from small startups and large pharmaceutical companies to wholesalers, retail pharmacies and hospital systems; 99% are U.S. companies.
Our highly touted, 27-year track record includes delivery of more than 10 billion doses since 2012 without a single interruption and an exceptional inspection history and compliance record as noted by regulators, including the U.S. Food & Drug Administration, multiple state Boards of Pharmacy, U.S. Pharmacopeia and the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy.
Ritedose conducts all its development, manufacturing and packaging on a 33-acre campus in South Carolina. With more than 500 employees occupying 273,000 square feet – a 120,000-square-foot manufacturing facility adjacent to a 153,000-square-foot packaging and distribution facility – our annual capacity is 2+ billion units.
Through a $7 million investment in 2018, we expanded operations and added the Ritedose Outsourcing Facility. This 503B facility manufactures and delivers sterile, pre-filled syringe products for hospitals and healthcare facilities throughout the U.S., focusing on drugs that are medically necessary and in short supply nationally.
Ours is a culture rooted in honoring the patient. In every product we develop, every process we improve, every drug we manufacture, we see patients and those who deliver their care. It’s why we have exacting standards and an eagerness to make everything right.
Ritedose is dedicated to the community we call home. We provide financial support and volunteers to local organizations like Homeless No More, Epworth Children’s Home, Ronald McDonald House, Harvest Hope Food Bank and more.
As Columbia and the nation have grappled with the COVID-19 pandemic, Ritedose has worked to uphold our team and support those in the community impacted by the public health and economic crises. Here’s how:
