Full service—
full commitment.

Luye Pharma is a trusted partner to the global pharmaceutical industry, developing and manufacturing patient-focused transdermal patches with proven active substances. Our mission is to create tailored solutions that meet the specific pharmaceutical requirements of markets, customers, and patients.

Global partner for global players

As well as partnering with high-profile pharmaceutical companies in research, development, and cost-efficient production of sophisticated drugs, we offer all-inclusive, hassle-free licensing for our own products. As part of the China-based Luye Life Sciences Group, we are also responsible for the European operations of the rapidly growing Luye Pharma Group, which has a current workforce of over 4,000 employees.

Our plant in Miesbach, Germany, is home to our competence center for transdermal therapeutic systems. Here, a team of around 220 specialists produces high-quality, competitive products for our customers. The transdermal delivery system and its ease of application mean our transdermal patches have greater patient tolerance than conventional delivery methods and are therefore more conducive to patient compliance.
