Quality Control

Focus on quality

Albemarle has provided custom manufacturing for over 40 years. Both a customer and quality focus are paramount at Albemarle. Our quality systems are robust and amongst the leaders in the industry. Our facilities are staffed with experienced quality control groups that operate independently from the plant operations to ensure the customer's needs and expectations are satisfied.

All Albemarle sites maintain a quality control group that functions around the clock, 365 days per year. This group is responsible for testing and verifying that incoming raw material is within purchasing specifications, ensuring all in-process testing is in accordance with specified product and ensuring final product conformity with agreed customer specifications. 

Each facility is equipped with sufficient analytical equipment to perform the required testing. Typical pieces of analytical equipment employed by Albemarle are:
• GC
• HPLC autotitrators
• Mass spectrometry
• Particle size testing and polarimeters for chiral testing

As needed, other equipment can be used or outsourced to audited and monitored third parties. Our analytical equipment is calibrated at set frequencies to ensure that our analyses are both complete and accurate.

In the pharmaceutical industry, additional quality control procedures are often required. Our South Haven, MI facility run under cGMPs(current good manufacturing practices), which bring additional quality requirements such as process and equipment validations, stability testing and documentation control. Albemarle’s quality assurance group is the guardian of the cGMP efforts and conducts activities such as batch record review and final product testing, coordination of annual product reviews, and conducting audits of raw material vendors and outside contractors, as well as coordinating customer audits.
