Rick Kettinger

Business Unit Head - Pharmaceutical and Nutritional

"ABITEC is an extraordinary company that works closely with pharmaceutical and nutritional formulators to enhance the bioavailability of active pharmaceutical and nutritional ingredients to make a difference in the quality of life of patients and health conscious consumers."

Why do I work here?

"To work closely with a formulation development team, be it in the pharmaceutical or nutritional field, and one day, after years of trials and tribulations, know that your company, your team, your colleagues have helped create a product to improve the quality of human life or help create a cure for a terminal disease, gives me great pride in working at ABITEC. At the end of the day, we make a difference, and I find that very exciting."
