Why Vancouver?

Vancouver has something for everyone! British Columbia is beautiful and exciting. From the people, to the mountains, to the sprawling coastline, everywhere you look. Nestled on the warm Pacific Coast with the Rockies blocking cold arctic winds. Vancouver has the good fortune of being spared the typically chilly winters associated with Canada. Vancouver is often called ‘two cities in one’ because people are equally prone to enjoy the bustling nightlife and experiencing a plethora of activities in the surrounding nature. Imagine enjoying a day-long trek through our world-renowned rain forests, then heading into the city for a night out. Vancouver truly is as beautiful as people say and more.   Evonik’s Vancouver business operations is a development partner to the world’s pharmaceutical companies for parenteral lipid nanoparticle drug products.  As an enabling contract development manufacturing organization (CDMO) partner, we offer drug formulation design, process development, scale-up, and clinical production.
