How it Started
Recognizing the absence of any competitive softgel CMO manufacturers in Eastern Canada and leveraging 25+ years of expertise in softgel encapsulation, the management team at GI Sportz Inc. (“GI Sportz”), the world’s largest paintball manufacturer, had a vision to create a new kind of softgel CMO. With that vision, Capcium Inc. (“Capcium”) was born.
Mission - 2017
Over the course of 2017, Capcium has focused on becoming “the” North American transformer of cannabis products for leading Canadian Licensed Producers (LPs) with a focus on softgel products. With numerous commercial deals with various leading LPs in sight, Capcium is embarking on the construction of a new $60m state-of-the art facility to solidify itself as a leading global manufacturer of softgel (and other quality products) for the cannabis industry.
Facility - 2017
Capcium’s new facility will be pharmaceutical grade and, in addition to cannabis, will be able to accommodate the move towards pharmaceutical cannabis, as well as over-the-counter (OTC), pharmaceutical and nutraceutical products.
Team - 2018
Over the past 12 months Capcium has assembled a best-in-class management team (with extensive encapsulation and pharmaceutical expertise) to lead these efforts when the new facility opens in mid-2019, and is currently in the process of preparing its ACMPR application. The new facility will be constructed to meet Health Canada, FDA and EMEA regulatory standards.
Expertise - 2018
During construction of the new facility, Capcium is proud to offer on-site expertise and manufacturing capabilities to its Canadian LPs to ensure that the highest quality cannabis softgel products are available to the market.
