Almapal is a family business founded in São Paulo in 1982 by the Argentine couple Antonio and Monica Palacios.
Organized as a company that offered technical and commercial support for the use of methacrylate acid-based polymers, used in film coating, it was an innovative process at the time. Mr. Palacios developed formulations with the Eudragit acrylic polymers system in 20 countries in Latin America, Spain, and Portugal for over 20 years.
Soon, the desire to bring more complete solutions to customers made Mr. Palacios and his son, Alejo Palacios, also a pharmacist, to look for representations of equipment for the Brazilian pharmaceutical industry. In 1991, the partnership with the German company Glatt GmbH, absolute reference in the pharmaceutical market in equipment for the manufacturing of oral solids, showed the market that Almapal was determined to offer high technology and the best solutions to its customers.
Over the years, father and son attended various international fairs, as well as visited companies around the world, aiming to bring the best company solutions in equipment, products, and services through exclusive agents known around the world for their excellence and quality. And the technical support offered by Almapal became a differential for those who want to invest with the certainty that the post-sales will be as accurate as the equipment they offer.
Always attentive to the demands of the market, they began to provide services in the manufacture of solids, tablet coating and compression, manipulation and blistering and expanded the development lab.
In 1998 he founded Almapal Colombia, in order to assist the Colombian market through the provision of equipment and raw materials, as well as specialized technical support for the pharmaceutical, cosmetic, veterinary, and food industries.
In 2010 Almapal Argentina was founded, extending the business of the Brazilian headquarters and taking on the challenge of offering the Argentine market high technology solutions through international representations of equipment for the pharmaceutical industry.
Almapal promoted a corporate restructuring process by entering into a strategic partnership in order to segregate the business lines in 2010, and through this process it took over commercial representations, through the sale of equipment, products, raw materials, spare parts, and technical support, in addition to the development lab for pharmaceuticals, veterinary products, and cosmetics that is available to customers for new formulations and designs. The Almapal team is able to offer in-company training on equipment and processes to empower employees / customers who will handle and operate our equipment.
Mr. Palacios continues ahead of business and is recognized in the market for his constant search for the best solution for his customers, and in 2016, he welcomed his daughter, Mariela Palacios, by his side in the company in order to continue this philosophy of work that has been successful for over 30 years.
