Product Development Capabilities
Tower Laboratories has expertise in the development of all types of effervescent products from concept through commercialization. Customers are often invited to work side-by-side with our Product Development Scientists in order to fine-tune product parameters such as flavor, fragrance, dissolution characteristics, etc. in order to meet specifications and product objectives. Project timelines are difficult to predict given that all have different challenges and/or nuances. That said, a typical development timeline may run from 9 to 18 months including prototype development, optimization, line trials, validation and formal stability testing. Development costs also vary significantly from project to project and can sometimes be amortized into the costs for initial production runs (depending on volumes). Tower Laboratories typically does not engage in development projects on a fee basis; we make every effort to leverage our product development resources against projects that will result in a long-term supply agreement.
