About Us

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 was born.

License - November 2015

Based in Montreal, Capcium received its Health Canada site license to become a North American CMO of softgel for nutraceutical industry products in November 2015.

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.

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.

Partnership - September 2016

Understanding the needs of the marketplace to produce products for the pharmaceutical industry, to satisfy the stringent global regulatory requirements, in September 2016, Capcium partnered with Pharmascience Inc., one of Canada’s leading manufacturer and marketer of prescription; generic, over-the-counter, and behind-the-counter products as well as FDA approved Canadian-made injectables, which became a significant stakeholder in Capcium.

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.

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.

What's next

The whole of the Capcium management team is looking forward to welcoming our customers at our new facility and to the great things to come in our future!
