Animal Health Company Changes Its Name

The name will ‘better reflect the company’s exclusive focus.’




ST. LOUIS, MO – Tropichem has begun operating under the name Vetio.

The new name was chosen to better reflect the company’s focus as a contract development and manufacturing organization for animal health, according to a press release.

“The launch of our new brand marks another significant step toward the Company’s goal of becoming the leading CDMO in Animal Health,” Vetio CEO John Kane said. “Our brand promise, Actualizing Animal Health, means that we work with our customers to turn their ideas into reality. Vetio is a single-source partner for successful development, technical transfers, analytical services, and manufacturing.”

The company acquired TetraGenx earlier this year.

According to the release: “At that time, the company outlined a strategy to expand its manufacturing capabilities to meet the specific needs of Animal Health companies. In September, it announced plans to build a non-sterile liquid facility in Montreal. The company is also currently in the construction phase of a solid dose plant to produce pharmaceutical soft chews, tablets, and ingredients in its Montreal location.”

Both plants will begin commercial production in mid to late 2019.
