Being part of the Sofinn Group, Pharmtec benefits from privileged access to a broader market, thus strengthening its presence and impact.

The Pharmtec brand will in the future be synonymous with the forefront in Effluent Decontamination as we will continue to develop our well known patented solutions for effluent Decontamination under the Pharmtec brand.  

1976: Foundation of Sofinn SA to serve the French market with various Finnish high-tech equipment.

1977: Establishment of Finn-Aqua SA (now Pharmtec SA) to specialise in the market of water distillation for                  the pharmaceutical industry.

2021: Pharmtec opens a workshop in Normandy and delivers its first equipment, an Effluent                                           Decontamination Station and a Duo System of two GVPs).

2022: The company renews its partnership with Tofflon, a world leader in lyophilisers, and becomes the                       exclusive representative of the brand in France and Finland.

2023: Start of French manufacturing of Aqua-Nova equipment (Water Distillers for WFI, Pure Steam                               Generators, combi devices: 2 in 1) through manufacturing agreement with sister company Aqua-Nova

Our products

We excel in delivering pharmaceutical turnkey projects, with expertise in water sterilization, dry heat sterilizers, and more. Our deep industry knowledge and regulatory compliance ensure customized solutions that guarantee quality. Exceptional customer service and strategic project management ensure successful outcomes. In pharmaceuticals, our proven track record speaks for itself.

Aqua-Nova stills mark a significant leap in distillation technology with reduced steam velocity and enhanced performance. Their robust, reliable design, complete with modulating control valves for all fluids, guarantees optimal operation across all conditions.

Aqua-Nova’s ‘float’ type heat exchangers excel by completely submerging in water, preventing thermal stress that may lead to micro cracks. This design ensures uniform contraction and expansion of tubes and the mantle under consistent steam and water conditions.

Lytzen has been fully specialized in depyrogenation ovens for over 50 years. What makes Lytzen unique is their highly specialized knowledge in this special application of batch depyrogenation in chambers ranging from 590 liters to about 7000 liters.

Lyophilization, commonly known as freeze-drying, is a crucial process in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries. Maintaining product integrity is key. Mainly used for preservation of biologicals and drug formulation among many other things.

High-level containment powder transfer systems for the pharmaceutical industry. The products include powder filling and emptying stations, the PCC (Pro Clean Conveyor) pneumatic powder transfer system, and powder sampling devices.

Drawing on its expertise in the field of water treatment and heat sterilisation. Sofinn has through Pharmtec SA developed a new technology (patented) for effluent decontamination without pumps and heat exchangers, meeting BSL requirements for levels 1, 2, 3, and 4 with superior resistance to clogging.

The transferring of biopharmaceutical products, such as vaccines, monoclonal antibodies, or gene therapies, from bulk containers into their final dosage forms, which are typically vials, syringes, or other delivery systems is highly regulated and demands precision and sterility to ensure the quality and safety of the final product.

Sofinn provides service at all stages in the lifetime of the equipment, keeping the equipment in good working order and prolonging the lifetime of the installations. Carried out by our high quality, well-trained professionals with experience from the pharmaceutical industry.
