Who we are

Born in Lisbon, but reaching out for the world. 4TE was created to deliver engineering solutions to organisations in the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical field.

For the last two decades we have become a reference in pharmaceutical plant engineering, production scale-up, digital transformation and transition to the 4.0 Industry.

Our solutions are built on top of our experienced Consultancy, our Risk Management Platform iRISK™ and our Process Lifecycle Management Platform iSEE Platform™

What our clients say about us

When we decided to go with iRISK from 4TE, we warned them that this would be a challenge for them as we wanted to have the roll-out concluded within less than 6 months. But the support we received from all of their team members, their willingness to accommodate our requests and timelines, and their expertise in resolving all the issues that came up during the project was amazing.

“We have undertaken the challenge to roll out a harmonised approach to Quality Risk Management throughout development at all of our sites as part of our QbD driven development approach. Eight legacy sites in six countries using the same software, the same templates, the same wording, and agreeing on harmonised workflows.

When we decided to go with iRISK™ from 4TE for this project we warned the team of 4TE that this will be a real challenge for them as we wanted to conclude the roll out within less than 6 months and to have the software fully operational at all sites by beginning of 2021. But the support we got from all of the team members from 4TE, their willingness to accommodate our requests and timelines, and their expertise in resolving all issues that came up during definition and implementation of the requirements was really amazing.

And we therefore managed to achieve our objectives despite all the obstacles caused by Covid-19 preventing us to meet face to face. The team is extremely responsive, knowledgeable and willing to go the extra mile at all times. Thank you, it’s a pleasure to work with you and I look forward to continue doing so.”
