About Us

"INTELLIGENCE DOES WHAT IT CAN, GENIUS DOES WHAT IT MUST, PASSION DOES EVERYTHING! "

Founded in 1988, OmegaChem is a Canadian manufacturing company engaged in organic chemistry. The company's mission is to develop, manufacture and distribute fine chemicals, mainly high-value organic synthesis intermediates, niche products such as organofluorinated compounds, chiral molecules derived from amino acids and highly functionalized heterocyclic molecules. In addition to the products offered in its catalogue, OmegaChem develops and synthesizes for its customers molecules for biological tests under research and development contracts. OmegaChem offers different solutions according to the needs of its customers, such as custom synthesis, chemical process optimization and research and development contracts.

Over the years, OmegaChem has acquired a solid expertise in organic chemistry, medicinal chemistry and process chemistry. This expertise enabled it to embark on two research projects in 2009, aiming to identify bioactive molecules within the context of a drug discovery programme.  In addition, in 2013, OmegaChem founded BoroChem PBO in France in order to expand its product offering on the market by acquiring the expertise in boron chemistry of a French company. This acquisition reflects the ambition of sustained growth and represents an important milestone for OmegaChem, enabling it to strengthen its presence in the pharmaceutical industry.
