Our Purpose

Everything Argonaut Manufacturing Services does is aimed at improving the human condition. With a culture that attracts highly talented people, innovating superior products and services, we help our partners exceed their goals in the world of health. 

Like you, we Wanted a Better Solution for Contract Manufacturing

So we ventured out and created what we wanted most in a manufacturing service ourselves. We left our executive leader roles at Althea, Thermo Fisher, Affymetrix, Allergan, Ion Torrent, and other industry-leading organizations and built Argonaut Manufacturing Services to do Contract Manufacturing, Done Right.

We Understand, Because We Were in Your Shoes

A dream team with decades of experience has enabled us to design Argonaut Manufacturing Services to our high standards, with the customer in focus.
