Akums Drugs receives EU GMP approval for two Haridwar-based manufacturing plants
Akums Drugs & Pharmaceuticals Ltd. announced on Friday that it had recently obtained strict European Union (EU) Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) approval for two of its manufacturing units in Haridwar.
According to the company’s press release, a factory manufactures solid oral dosage forms such as tablets, capsules, powders in sachets, etc. belonging to the generalist category, and the other manufactures the large volume and small volume parenteral range including vials, ampoules, eye drops, FFS as well as dry powder injections belonging to the penicillin range.
“We are pleased to announce that Akums Drugs has received EU GMP approval for two of our manufacturing facilities based in Haridwar, paving the way for new opportunities across the EU as well as in many other regulatory markets. We are already India’s largest contract manufacturing company, manufacturing over 12% of the country’s domestic supply. What makes us happiest, however, is being recognized for our “Quality First” approach. Although we have been approved for this quality by our partners who are also leading Indian and multinational pharmaceutical companies, the latest nod to EU GMP is widely recognized and accepted. Congratulations to the entire team, and I hope this is the start of many possibilities for us,” Akums Drugs & Pharmaceuticals Founder, Promoter and Director Shri Sandeep Jain said in a statement on Friday.
“Akums already exports to more than 50 countries around the world. With compliance with EU Good Manufacturing Practices, we now have access to the strictest global pharmaceutical markets next to the USA. These include the whole of the European Union and other markets such as South Africa, Canada, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Australia/New Zealand and most of Middle Eastern countries. Since EU GMP is their reference standard, we are welcome to respond to pharmaceutical inquiries from all these geographies. With a significant R&D infrastructure already in place, we are well equipped with our product basket to expand our presence in these regulated markets. While we are extremely proud and excited to expand our presence in these markets, the Indian domestic market has always been our pride and passion, and will continue to be. The trust our partners have in us and our exceptional quality standards are paramount to us,” said Shri Sanjeev Jain, Founder, Promoter and Director of Akums Drugs & Pharmaceuticals.
