“We have long regarded J+D Labs’ reputation and the significance of what they bring to the table as a leader in the industry,” said Mr. Wood. “J+D Labs’ extensive experience manufacturing a wide-range of softgels, specialized tablets, capsules, and powder formulations was a perfect complement to Captek’s offerings.”
