Entourage’s goal is to provide clients with a low-risk introduction into solventless products.
We can price our services on a trial basis, a contract manufacturing basis or on a knowledge transfer basis that would leave you owning the equipment and expertise to operate your own solventless products lab.

Whether our client is looking at expanding an existing site, changing the workflow, optimizing existing production or getting a new license we always look concurrently through a regulatory and an optimization lens.
Our goal is to get you to your goals faster, with less cash in use in the process and less cash in use when you get there. The result is a business with faster cash turns and better return on utilizes assets. We also want to make sure we protect what you’ve already achieved by developing regulatory strategies to maintain licensure and improve regulatory relationships.
Our regulatory and business optimization reporting can also be used to provide comfort to independent board members, lenders and/or insurers.
