Our CDMO vision

As contract development and manufacturing organization within Fujifilm we believe that we are at our best when we stick to our core technologies, like roll to roll coating.

We continuously look for new challenges where we can use our operational excellence and high tech services. We like to realise products with our partners in a proactive way. We believe we are stronger together. By contributing to the sharing economy together: it is beneficial for you as our partner and beneficial for us as contract manufacturer

Our history, our story

In 1934 we started the production of motion picture film manufacturing; the first coating was a fact. As from 1958 we were able to coat layers in a single step to make colour negative film.

In 1965 we introduced a new coating method, using bar coating, for the production of offset plates. In 1982 Netherlands-based Fuji Photo Film B.V. (currently Fujifilm Manufacturing Europe B.V.) was established as the Fujifilm group's principal manufacturing company in Europe.

In 1991 at the same site the Tilburg Research Laboratory was opened as part of Fujifilm Manufacturing Europe B.V. The total company site covers 61 hectare and has 3 production plants. With approximately 800 employees this is one of the largest Fujifilm production facilities.

Based on our long standing knowledge in coating thin functional layers onto substrates, we started separation membranes development for various industries in 2007.This is an example of new innnovation within coating technology as one of our core competences, for a complete new market.

We care

All electrical energy used on our Tilburg site is generated by wind power. These wind turbines that drive the plant are partly placed on site and partly nearby Zeeland, The Netherlands.

In addition, Fujifilm has an afterburner to generate steam from our waste gases. Furthermore we operate an onsite water purification which is a joint project with neighbouring companies. We are also active in the region by means of sponsoring local organisations, such as local nature conservation projects.
