Our History

The benefits from being on your side of the desk.


Velesco was formed in 2007 by former Pfizer Michigan R&D (Pharmaceutical Science) colleagues. Velesco’s founders, analytical chemists, drug formulation and manufacturing team are pharmaceutical industry veterans with decades of experience in both early phase and later phase drug development.  Colleagues were trained at the various legacy big pharma research and development facilities that were located in Michigan, including Pfizer, Warner Lambert, Parke Davis, Upjohn and Pharmacia, among others. Velesco operates from state of the art facilities and has maintained a focus on providing early phase drug formulation, analytical method development and cGMP clinical supply materials to small to mid-sized biotech and pharmaceutical companies. We have an experienced team that has worked on over 200 drug development programs and is eager to assist our clients, both returning and new!
