Explanation:
A company that specialises in scaling up a process to provide a product for another company is often know as a 'toll producer'. Such companies regularly scale up new laboratory scale processes for their customers and are likely to employ a number of chemists that specialise in this area. Some companies will have only one or two new processes to scale up every few years, while others will have a continuous programme of such activity. Both will need to put together project teams to cover the process of moving from laboratory to plant, but the number of people and the different specialists needed will depend on the size of the project.
