Colorcon is excited to bring our educational program of Film Coating Technology and incorporate it with the experience that Natoli offers at their training center.Ē

Dedicated to educating the pharmaceutical industry, Natoliís technical training center opened in June 2004 as the first non-commercial training center dedicated solely to the tablet compression industry.
