Our Story

Established in 1977, the Nowchem Group is a family-owned Australian chemical and pharmaceutical manufacturing business that specialises in providing world-class contract manufacturing services including TGA-approved products.

Based in the Shoalhaven, Nowchem originated as a chemical manufacturer supplying the local paper mill with various chemicals which later expanded to various services including contract manufacturing for pharmaceutical brands in the early 2000s. Since then, Nowchem has worked with many of Australia’s leading pharmaceutical brands as well as numerous international brands.
