Our role in the society

APL (Apotek Produktion & Laboratorier AB) is a Swedish state-owned company with a public policy assignment to develop, manufacture and supply unlicensed sterile and non-sterile pharmacy compounding products for patients with additional needs, both as individually tailored extemporaneous medicines and as batch-manufactured stock formulations. We aim to provide treatments for patients with additional needs who cannot use readily available medication. This is done in close collaboration with specialists, prescribers and authorities. The assignment also comprises preparedness to maintain operations in times of crisis.

We also offer contract development and manufacturing (CDMO) services within the life science industry. We are an established provider of pharmaceutical development, commercial manufacturing and analytical services.


We aim to contribute to better health for all, a protected environment, a sound economy and a sustainable society. Our employees and other stakeholders are our most important resources. We work with a long-term view of ensuring our manufactured products are of the highest quality — a prerequisite for safe and effective medicines.

Patient safety

We develop and manufacture extemporaneous medications and stock for the pharmacy market and healthcare services, to facilitate easier access to medicines and increase patient safety. We also offer high-quality development, laboratory and manufacturing services to pharmaceutical companies.
