With research and GMP manufacturing operations in New Zealand, US, UK, and EU, Argenta holds a unique position as the only combined global contract research organization (CRO) and contract manufacturing organization (CMO) dedicated to animal health.
Argenta operates from Molecule to Market in partnership with customers of all sizes from all corners of the world, supporting their research & development, clinical research, regulatory, scale up and manufacturing needs along their veterinary product development journey.
The day-to-day ethos that drives Argenta forward is a mission focused on global partnerships, a Molecule to Market approach, and innovation. At the core of the business and the organization is collaboration —among the global employee base and with their customers. Working together, Argenta continually challenges the status quo to continuing to innovate to develop the best animal health technologies and products possible.
From animal scientists to veterinarians to engineers and other industry experts, Argenta’s 500+ strong global team is a passionate and diverse group united in their commitment to healthy animals. The company operates from Research & Development locations in New Zealand, the US and Germany, and (EMA and FDA) GMP approved Manufacturing sites in New Zealand, the United Kingdom (Scotland) and the United States (Fort Dodge, Iowa).
