Interdisciplinary consulting team for your success

To ensure your suc­cess, we com­bine three essen­tial areas with our team: Inter­cul­tur­al com­pe­ten­cies, a high lev­el of ser­vice as well as exper­tise with­in the dif­fer­ent fields of indus­try applications.

Intercultural Competencies:

Every coun­try in the world brings with it not only dif­fer­ent reg­u­la­to­ry require­ments, but also cul­tur­al dif­fer­ences. To ensure that we can pro­vide you with the best pos­si­ble sup­port, we have relied for years on a team of col­leagues with dif­fer­ent cul­tur­al back­grounds. This allows us to build a long-term and authen­tic busi­ness relationship.

Customer Service:

In addi­tion, our cus­tomer ser­vice team is espe­cial­ly trained when it comes to the inter­na­tion­al ship­ping of our prod­ucts. No mat­ter whether doc­u­men­ta­tion, import require­ments, logis­tics by sea, air or couri­er – we advise you com­plete­ly, indi­vid­u­al­ly and promptly.

Expert Knowledge:

On the world mar­ket for min­er­al com­pounds, we have been at home for decades already. Many long-stand­ing cus­tomers from a wide range of indus­tries rely on our exper­tise. This is enriched by the expert knowl­edge of our col­leagues from the oth­er MAGNESIA Busi­ness Units, which can be accessed at any time.

As a cer­ti­fied dis­trib­u­tor of active ingre­di­ents, we always keep an eye on the require­ments of the respec­tive coun­tries for the pro­duc­tion and reg­is­tra­tion of phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal products.

Global distribution – always safe

Supplier qualification as an integrated process

As part of the qual­i­fi­ca­tion process of our sup­pli­ers, we car­ry out appro­pri­ate audits and ensure that require­ments are met. Even after suc­cess­ful qual­i­fi­ca­tion, com­pli­ance with legal require­ments is reg­u­lar­ly assessed. Our inte­grat­ed process ensures that all changes at sup­pli­er facil­i­ties or to the prod­uct that could affect man­u­fac­tur­ing or test para­me­ters are checked and approved before implementation.

MAGNESIA makes the difference

MAGNESIA not only offers excel­lent addi­tives, active ingre­di­ents and excip­i­ents, but also a com­pre­hen­sive ser­vice that our long-term cus­tomers par­tic­u­lar­ly appre­ci­ate. Qual­i­ty man­age­ment, doc­u­ment man­age­ment and the nec­es­sary cer­ti­fi­ca­tions and audits of sup­pli­ers and prod­ucts are an inte­gral part of our ser­vice. Furthermore

fixed con­tact per­sons make the coop­er­a­tion a real part­ner­ship for both sides, which ben­e­fits from work­ing hand in hand. In short: We think along with you, and the up-to-date­ness of the doc­u­ments required by qual­i­ty man­age­ment is proac­tive­ly provided,

one of our suc­cess prin­ci­ples is called “trans­paren­cy”. We are hap­py to com­ply with the request of our man­u­fac­tur­er part­ners to dis­close the ori­gin of sub­stances and mate­ri­als ordered,

seam­less mon­i­tor­ing of the sup­ply chain is guar­an­teed, in par­tic­u­lar to meet our due dili­gence oblig­a­tions as min­er­al trad­er and to make the pro­cure­ment process and stor­age as trans­par­ent as possible.

short deliv­ery times are a cru­cial fac­tor for our cus­tomers. We, there­fore, either use our own ware­house for stock­ing pur­pos­es or a suit­ably qual­i­fied and mon­i­tored exter­nal ware­house keeper,

MAGNESIA, as a reli­able part­ner, safe­guards the intel­lec­tu­al prop­er­ty rights of your prod­ucts. We treat your trade secrets with absolute con­fi­den­tial­i­ty and the pro­tec­tion of cus­tomer data is one of our values.
