Our New Journey
With the launch of our new state-of-the-art research and manufacturing facility in Homagama, we aspire to embark on a new journey.
We are working towards creating a strong pharmaceutical brand with a patient centric medicine portfolio while driving the local pharmaceutical industry to the next level.
We commit towards continuously complying to premium quality standards, investing in the latest technology, absorbing the right talent and bringing in novel molecules advancing in the global pharmaceutical arena.
We marked the launch of our commercial operations from our new manufacturing facility on 26th May 2022, after obtaining the seal of approval from the National Medicines Regulatory Authority (NMRA).
As our 1st batches we manufactured and released Chlorphenamine Oral Solution and Paracetamol 500mg tablets, at a time they are most needed by the nation.
We are hopeful that we can make a step change in the pharma manufacturing industry in Sri Lanka by staying true to our purpose of “Making Premium Healthcare Affordable”
