Our Background

Meet us

SlateXpace™ was created for innovators

With three decades of innovation driving us forward, the CRB team has once again identified the industry’s next seismic shift and has engineered a solution to keep our clients ahead of it.

Today’s pharmaceutical manufacturers face immense pressure to move fast. To meet that pressure, they’re developing complex product pipelines, hoping to scale successful modalities to commercial volume quickly and cost-effectively. Conventional facilities, designed for single-product manufacturing, are slowing them down.

A new breed of manufacturing facility is necessary, one that’s designed to campaign smoothly between modalities without extended downtime or costly modifications. It needs to be flexible, scalable, and easy for manufacturers to validate and operate. Above all, it needs to retain its value long into the future, no matter where that future goes next.

It needs to be SlateXpace™.

Our Mission

Our mission is to meet the challenges of modern pharmaceutical manufacturing with a flexible, multimodal solution that delivers product to market faster and more cost-effectively.

“We started SlateXpace with the goal of delivering a facility that would never be idle. Manufacturers have the means to rapidly shift their operations as technologies change, business expands, and patient needs evolve. That will minimize downtime and maximize growth, no matter what comes next.”
— Ryan Schroeder, President of CRB
